This was fun. My daughter loved it. I thought it cool except that the illusions sometimes appeared to move and made me nautious. The staff was wonderful and explained the illusions and were very helpful. This is about an hour of fun and is very...More

We loved it! Super cool and intriguing. Just wish there was more to look at or it wasn't so pricey for how small it is.. but we still had fun! :)

Fun for a family with teens and up. It did seem a little expensive - $12 for students & $15 for adults. Takes about an hour to see exhibit. A fun extra when visiting Union Station. Located by the IMAX and a short walk through...More

We took our sons ages 5, 7, and 12. They had a blast going through the exhibit - especially the 'spinning tunnel'. I thought it was definitely unique, but for the number of exhibits it was a little pricey.

We spent about an hour here with our teenagers and grade school kids. Its not a huge space and was a little crowded when we went on a busy weekend. Its roughly the size of the illusions area in Science City, but there was definitely...More

Visited here with my husband and adult daughter. Fun exhibits that will exercise the mind and make you laugh. (As well as providing photo ops!) Small shop with really nice wooden puzzles and other great gifts. Museum is in a great location too!

We visited the museum with our 12, 9,7,5 and 3 year old. I would say our oldest three had the most fun and looked closely at all the puzzles. Our youngest still had fun but also had a shorter attention span. One review said the...More

Although interesting, don't believe it was worth $10/person. (We even got discounts. Could have been $12-$15/person). It's a small room, most illusions are on the wall in form of prints Only few interactive. Took approx 45 min for 5 of us. I'd say it's worth...More

Thank you for your review, Stephanie! Sounds like the kids couldn't get enough of the museum :) Surely 45 minutes of educational entertainment is worth more than 10 minutes of laser tag?
