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!

As a family we all loved it here! It's a must visit! There's things to do for all ages. The only thing is when we left we felt really quite disoriented!
