Zagreb's Museum of Illusions will take over the city's famous Grič tunnel for the 2018 edition of the annual UNICEF Museum of Reality. Following three years of being held in the main museum, this year the presentation will occur in the subterranean, city centre tunnel, as part of the Zagreb-wide Advent celebrations.
Promising an interactive experience with installations, virtual reality and 'live exhibits', it will present visitors with strikingly different realities faced by children in Croatia and around the world. The tunnel takes its name from the city centre neighbourhood under which it is situated (also known as Gradec or Gornji Grad) and runs from Mesnička Street in the west and Stjepan Radić Street in the east, with four passageways extending to the south. It was built during World War II.
The exhibits of this year's Museum of Reality can be seen in Grič Tunnel from Saturday 1 December to Tuesday 11 December. On an opening day – Saturday – the working hours of the Museum are 12 noon to 10 p.m., while on all other days the Museum doors will be open from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Entrance is free.
