Howdy Houston!

We are thrilled to announce the grand opening of the Museum of Illusions in Houston, Texas, which took place on September 1st at The Galleria Houston. After Dallas and Austin, The Museum of Illusions has finally brought its mesmerizing world of optical illusions, mind-bending exhibits, and captivating artworks to the heart of Texas!

Spanning over 6000 square feet, the MOI Houston boasts more than 60 mind-boggling exhibits designed to challenge your perception, entertain your senses, and spark your creativity. The Museum collaborated with renowned Houston-based artist Donkeeboy, (Alex Roman Jr.) to make the grand opening even more unique.

"I'm honored to collaborate with the Museum of Illusions and represent a piece of the Houston art world in doing so. 'Remixing' things playfully is something I've always loved to do in my own work. Beyond that, I'm fascinated by the concept of the multiverse and letting my imagination run wild regarding what's beyond what the eye can see. This exhibition does all that in a space that visitors can actually walk into," said Donkeeboy.

This collaboration has brought two incredible works of art to life within the Museum's walls: Wonder Frida and Building Illusion Masterpiece.

The Following Eyes exhibit is transported into the world of Frida Kahlo. Donkeeboy's 'Wonder Frida' pays tribute to the legendary artist with a burst of color, imagination, and an unforgettable twist on her iconic gaze. Nestled within the Building Illusion concept, this exclusive masterpiece promises to be a visual spectacle that will leave you speechless. Donkeeboy's signature style and unique pop culture perspective will shine through in this one-of-a-kind creation.

Making Houston's Museum of Illusions distinctive was important to the designers, according to Subhi Gharbieh, managing partner of Beyond Entertainment, which owns and operates all the Texas museums.

"There are a lot of new exhibits here in Houston that we don't have in our other two museums," Gharbieh says of the 6,000-square-foot venue. "Houston is the Space City, so a lot of our exhibits have a space, astronaut, outer space, spaceship theme. We really wanted to make this an out-of-this-world experience. It was only right to include space-themed designs."

We look forward to sharing this remarkable journey with you, Houston, and welcome to the fam!
