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!

Good place that is great fun! Good price to get in and although it is a bit shabby in places it held my 3 year olds interest entirely. Good little gift shop too with reasonable prices. They are also dog friendly too which is fantastic!

Great place to kill a couple of hours especially if it's raining. We all loved it. Not overpriced. Well worth a visit.

This place isn't just for children, we are two mature adults who had a very enjoyable time. I recommend the chair that goes uphill, haven't laughed so much for ages.
