Duality transformations are very important in both classical and quantum physics. They allow one to relate two seemingly different formulations of the same physical realm through clever mathematical manipulations, and offer numerous advantages for the study of many-body physics. In this work, we suggest a method which introduces them to the world of quantum simulation too: a feasible scheme for implementing duality transformations as physical operations, mapping between dual quantum states showing the same observable physics, rather than just a mathematical trick. Demonstrating with Abelian lattice models, we show how duality transformations could be implemented in the laboratory as sequences of single- and two-body operations - unitaries and measurements.
