Museum of Illusions Miami’s ticket deal

When your friends see that you hung out with an elephant, dangled off the edge of a skyscraper, stole a dragon's treasure and then walked the red carpet with Morgan Freeman and Robert Downey Jr. in the same afternoon, they won't believe their eyes. And at the Museum of Illusions, that's the whole point.

For a limited time, tickets are $17-$25.50 only through  goldstar.com that offers discounted prices for local entertainment venues. All you have have to do is signup with your email to become a member. Regular prices are $20-$30.

Located on iconic Lincoln Road, The Museum of Illusions has more than 30 3-D murals that create mind-blowing optical illusions. Artists from around the world have come together to create The Museum of Illusions, filling it with unique art based on pop culture, cartoons, movies, politics and the local culture. These murals fit right into the lively art scene of Miami. Here, friends and family, tourist and locals, people of all ages, can create picture perfect memories. The Museum of Illusions is the leader of the Instagramable museum trend.

Selfies are not only allowed, photography is encouraged. Guests are invited to take pictures and share them on social media for mind-blowing content that will leave their followers amazed. To help create the best experience, the museum has staff on hand to advise and help you take the best shots.
