Owner description: 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!
Reviewed September 23, 2017 via mobile

Cannot believe entry was under £4 each!
The building isn't anything special but the thought that has gone into each exhibit is brilliant! We loved it! Spent ages in there & took loads of photos & videos (won't upload as don't want to ruin it for anyone). An added benefit is that they allow dogs (this is how we came across if as I googled dog friendly places).

We visited as a large family group of 3 generations. My husband and I had been before years ago so suggested it when we were looking for a rainy day activity on a family break. It isn't massive but it is good value for the entry fee and makes for some fun photos. You'd probably spend about an hour to an hour and a half here.

We've been before but this time bought our daughter a brilliant experience as usual and as dogs were allowed in it was even better
