A unique exhibition based on optical illusion. Witness balls rolling uphill in the antigravity room, visibly grow and shrink in the Ames room and be amazed by our interactive optical illusion exhibits, artwork and sculptures, as well as the hologram gallery!

I had been past a few times over the years and finally went in when we passed by after a shopping trip. Great fun, all for the price of a pint of beer...we were talking about it for the rest of the day.
