Great show of the World's largest kaleidoscope. As a hotel guest of the Emerson, you get to see it for free!

We were staying at the hotel and realize there is a kaleidoscope store with a giant kaleidoscope to see. Went there, it was something that you saw once and probably is good for life kind of experience. But the store itself has a huge collection of kaleidoscopes which my husband and I enjoyed very much. We tried out different ones... More

If your passing by then sure stop by, it was 5$ per adult, my boys 6 & 8 were free. Nothing spectacular but neat to see "world's largest telescope". I would recommend laying on floor if possible. I thought that the lady running it was not kid friendly (didn't get her name though). Its definitely a once and done thing,... More

The tube of the "World's Largest Kaleidoscope" is contained in an old barn silo at an attractive site site near Hunter Mountain. You lean back on padded leaning benches to watch the exciting, colorful audio visual presentation above you. Great music accompanies the flowing patriotic themes above you. Great gift shop, great snack food and carefully maintained. Easy parking.

Not far from the Woodstock NY (where else?) or the slopes of Hunter Mountain Ski Resort stands a small attraction in Mt. Tremper, NY which calls itself the “World’s Largest Kaleidoscope.” It is about 20 minutes west of the Kingston NY exit of I87 (NY Thruway) on Rt 28. It is part of the Emerson Resort and Spa. There is... More

A gem, and I think all should check it out if in the area. The collection of kaleidoscopes equals the show. It is a unique and wonderful trip. Interesting collection of scopes and relaxing to be inside the largest one. Really cool, my kids loved it. Great gift shop

The ~15 min show was neat, but you may find yourself drifting off after about 5 minutes, Kids may like it better. The store itself has a huge selection of kaleidoscopes at different price ranges to peruse or buy.

Saw previous reviews and decided to make a special trip to see the world's largest kaleidoscope. We were not disappointed!! Linda the woman who has worked there for the entire 17 years it's been open was a true delight. She was very gracious showing us all of the beautiful hand held kaleidoscopes that were true pieces of art. The show... More
