Instagram-worthy installations: The Museum of 3D Illusions pops up in Fisherman's Wharf

A new pop-up museum has opened its doors at 55 Jefferson St. in Fisherman's Wharf. The fresh addition, called the Museum Of 3D Illusions, is an interactive installation designed for participants to take pictures in — much like last fall's Candytopia and the popular Museum of Ice Cream.

This is the second location for the Museum of 3D Illusions, which debuted a similar variation in Los Angeles last year. Like the original, it's an Instagrammer's paradise, billed as "a place to let the mind soar through a world of optical illusions."

More than 40 interactive exhibits feature an assortment of local landmarks, with paintings crafted by artists from across the globe. The attraction is not for the "passive observer," according to the business' website, but for "full-fledged participant[s] of the paintings." 

With a 4.5-star rating out of six reviews on Yelp so far, the Museum Of 3D Illusions seems to be a welcome addition to the Wharf.

Susan M., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on February 22, wrote, "They just opened last Saturday and it was pretty fun. The staff was nice and wasn't rushed. You get to take some cool pictures."

Yelper Angela B. added, “We really enjoyed our time here. Not rushed at all. The front desk and the rest of the staff was so nice and inviting. The artwork was pretty amazing.”

Interested? Stop by to welcome the new business to the neighborhood. Museum Of 3D Illusions is open from 10 a.m.–10 p.m. on Monday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday, 1 p.m.–10 p.m. on Wednesday, and 10 a.m.–11 p.m. on Saturday. (It's closed on Tuesday.)
