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!

“Be prepared to be puzzled”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Tucked away upstairs off Museum Square is a little gem for adults and children. I spent a good hour or so enjoying the visual puzzles that had clear instructions on what to do but also information on what you should see if you don't see it yourself. For a couple of quid this is a great after lunch activity or for an inclement day. Small shop area with kids stuff to buy.

“Good photo opportunity but visit only lasted about an hour”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

There are some fab illusions to try and some great photo opportunities but it's not the largest place and our visit only lasted about an hour. Well worth it if your seeing Isomething else in the area, Keswick is lovely and the animal park is only a 15 min drive.
