What are the exhibitions in the Museum of Illusions?

Previously, we have visited the Trick Art Museum in i-City, Shah Alam. However, most 3D museums only exhibit paintings where visitors have to use their own creativity in order to make the paintings seem real. It is different with Museum of Illusions though. Here, apart from the optical illusions that will blow your mind away, they also provide explanations to each exhibit displayed.
