The collection of kaleidoscopes for sale inside is vast in number and wide in range! You could buy a cheap-o kids model that is fun on up to and including ones that are truly works of art! (In fact, I bought 2) The gals behind...More

The KaleidOscraper is easily accessible from Route 28. It is located only a few miles from the New York State Thruway. This store is nestled among some upscale stores that cater to the female shopper...probably, from NYC and Albany. A public lavatory is located nearby....More

Very interesting experience. If you are in the area, a must visit. Children will be amazed for sure. They also have a nice collection for sale as well. Very friendly staff.

Stop here for the 10 min. Show so you can say you were there, but don't expect too much. The show is video, some not even simulating a kalidescope. The real ones for sale in the shop were great with a variety of options

We just happened upon the "World's Largest Kaleidoscope" on our drive. What a treat for me because I love kaleidoscopes. Take time in the shop to look through the ridiculously-expensive kaleidoscopes and enjoy the experience. Pay $5 to see the show. What a treat! If...More

My husband and I stopped here when we were in the area and we just happened upon this. It’s $5 to see a movie projected onto an enormous kaleidoscope screen. The particular movie we saw was about space and it was perfect for the kaleidoscope...More
