Philadelphia’s new Museum of Illusions will open to the public, Saturday, March 12. The Museum of Illusions offers visual and educational exhibits designed to tease the senses and bring out the playfulness in guests of all ages. With more than 80 exhibits featuring holograms, stereograms, and optical illusions, visitors will learn about vision, perception, and the human brain and experience firsthand the science of how the eyes can trick the mind. Visitors can step into a whole new world with the Vortex Tunnel, where their mind will think that the ground is moving under their feet, when it’s not, or go into the Clone Table to see their body double. Almost every exhibit will be interactive, immersive, and experiential. The world’s fastest-growing museum chain, the first Museum of Illusions opened in 2015 in Zagreb, Croatia, and has expanded to more than 30 museums globally.

The Interboro Military Tribute Banners Program will provide an opportunity for members of the community to purchase a military recognition banner to commemorate the service of one of the Interboro community’s many local veterans. The plan is to have the banners displayed throughout Prospect Park, Glenolden, Norwood, and Tinicum, the towns that make up Interboro School District, before Memorial Day in May.
The program was created to honor all Veterans who reside or resided within the Interboro School District towns, and to teach children about the sacrifice of veterans,  many of whom are our local heroes, family members, friends and neighbors who defended our country at their own risk, some paying the ultimate sacrifice.
For more information about purchasing a banner or becoming a sponsor of the banner program or to enter a veteran’s information and photo for a banner, visit or contact Pat Quinn at [email protected]
