Hi there! We are often told we are a good place to bring the kids as everything is interactive. Many of our visitors rate us very highly on our online survey when it comes to value for money. I’m sorry you did not feel this was the case. I hope you were aware that we offer a full money back guarantee for those who feel their visit did not live up to their expectations.
We absolutly loved this attractions friends raved how good it was and its was. We loved the tunnel and the mirror room fantastic. We had so much fun. The roof top views were beautiful.
Defo well worth a visit.
Hello. It’s great that your visit lived up to your friends recommendations. The Vortex Tunnel is a particular favourite amongst our visitors and staff.
Very good fun, go on a bright day for a good view of the city from the camera obscura, we went when it was clear but grey and couldn't see as much as if we'd gone when it was brighter. It's worth the trip for all the great illusions throughout the rest of the building though. Myself and two friends, all aged around our early 20's, were having just as much fun as the children!
Hi there! As you’ve said the Camera Obscura does work best on a bright sunny day, as it works on natural daylight and can potentially be a bit dark when it’s overcast. A lot of visitors tell me that our exhibits make them feel like a child again! Thanks for your kind words.
This place was wonderfully bizarre. I loved it. Very interesting and fun. Great place to wander round x
Hello! It’s fantastic to hear you enjoyed your visit.
Went 30th october at about 1800 hrs with 3 x 11 year olds. We thought it was excellent, so many exciting things in every room, which kept us occupied until it closed. The views from the top are superb and the shop is excellent. We were tired using all the steps but it was at the end of the evening. Excellent value for money.
Hi there! It’s fantastic that you enjoyed all of our exhibits! The stairs can be tiring, and to help with those who have difficulty with stairs we have placed seats on every level. Thank you for writing to us, it is wonderful to hear how much people enjoy their time here.
We used Tesco clubcard vouchers for entry which was great. Once inside we spent a good few hours exploring all the different exhibitions over the 4 floors. The show on the top floor was interesting, it wasn't a particularly sunny day but we did get quite a good image from the camera.
The rest of the illusions were excellent and my daughter enjoyed all the interaction. Her favourite was the vortex.....it made me slightly nauseous but was good fun!
Definitely go if you are staying in Edinburgh!
Hi there! I’m glad you enjoyed the show in the Camera Obscura as well as our other four floors of exhibitions. The Vortex Tunnel is one of the most popular exhibits here, it’s certainly one of my favourites. Thanks for taking the time out to leave us know about your visit.
