Owner description: A unique exhibition based on optical illusion. Witness balls rolling uphill in the antigravity room, visibly grow and shrink in the Ames room and be amazed by our interactive optical illusion exhibits, artwork and sculptures, as well as the hologram gallery!

This was reasonably priced and reasonably interesting! Good for one hour of a rainy day and the shop was good too.

We found this listed on TripAdvisor whilst looking for things to do in Keswick, and after reading the positive reviews felt we should have a look ourselves! We found it to be very entertaining - some of the illusions you've probably seen before, but there are plenty that are new. I liked the amount of 'interactive' illusions, such as press a button or roll this thing up, etc. The anti-gravity room was especially brilliant - even though you know how it's done you still find yourself confused that you rolled UP a slope in a chair. Fantastic.

The gift shop is well stocked with all sorts of things - mostly toys with a bit of tat, but still managed to squeeze an extra ten minutes out of the visit by having a browse.

Would definitely go back if in the area again.

Loved this, very stange feelings in some of the rooms, so if you are a bit queezy then those are not for you. The holograms are fantastic! A must if you are in Keswick:)

Visited the puzzling place on the recommendation of a friend. It was a great wee place and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's sensibly priced and fun for adults and I dare say kids too.

If you have a pushchair then if you can make it up the stairs then the rest is open plan so you can get around fine.

Some of the exhibits could do with a bit of a spruce up otherwise I would have given it 5* for what it is.

Thought provoking but great fun! Even if you don't have time to go in and see the exhibits, the shop is well worth a look.
