Barcelona opens a museum where nothing will be as it seems
In this museum nothing is what it seems because the essence of its existence is based on the art of paradox. The origin of the Paradox Museumwhich opens its doors on March 15 at number 3, Plaza Urquinaona. Barcelona’s Paradox Museum was born in the Croatian city of Zagreb and has rapidly expanded internationally, opening branches in Miami (USA), Oslo (Norway) and Stockholm (Sweden). After the opening of the Barcelona franchise, which will be the first in Spain, Paradox Museum will move to Paris (France) and Limassol (Cyprus).
In this new exhibition space, you will be able to see more than 70 exhibitions, each one more ambitious, all of them inspired by the recurring theme of this project, paradox and human perception combined with science and art. This mix makes this museum a “unique visual, sensory and educational experience,” say its promoters, and suitable for all ages. The secret of its success: “Nothing makes sense and yet everything is totally real”.
All exhibitions are designed for the visitor’s reflection.not just for their amusement. The experience it promises is interactive and focused on discovering firsthand how “the brain and senses can be tricked by a combination of visual and tactile stimuli”.
