Cute 10 minutes. It's free to hotel guests. We popped in since I t was raining outside and there was nothing else to do. The shopping area is entertaining also.

What an awesome place to check out indoors. Kids had a good time checking out all the Kaleidoscopes. It’s sure is better in person than thru pictures. It’s a must stop. Watch the 10min show. Kids can lay down.

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

I never considered myself all that into kaleidoscopes, but this was a pretty interesting place to look around. Our in-laws were vacationing with us and this kept their attention as well as the kids for a bit. Lots of stuff to look around at in...More

Is it worth $5 each to see 10 minutes of graphics at the top of a grain silo? Not really. However the gift shop is the real gem. Kaleidoscopes of all shapes and sizes. Ones that you'll remember from years ago, bespoke ones and specialized...More
