It’s a museum uniquely suited to the age of social media: New York City’s new Museum of Illusions opened this week, and its interactive optical and sensory illusions both educate and create perfect photo ops for sharing on Instagram and Facebook.

The permanent museum is suitable for all ages, and features dozens of interactive exhibits, including holograms, puzzles, and perspective-based illusions. The museum’s owners had previous success with similar installations throughout Europe before deciding to tackle Manhattan.

If you can’t get there in person right away, here’s a look at just a few of the exhibits in this mind-bending museum:
