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!

We walked in on a whim and have to say it was an enjoyable experience and something a little bit different - the attraction itself is quite small and you could see it all in about an hour. The optical illusions and exhibits are quite fascinating and you will get some interesting photos to remember your visit. I would recommend whiling away and hour or two here.

I think we spent about 2 hours in there (incredible value, since tickets were only £2.75), looking at all the illusions and then playing with the games in the gift shop.

A brilliant place to go - I highly recommend it! Especially if anyone in the group is keen on puzzles/interactive museums. Nearly everything is designed to be touched. Plus, it gives great photo-opportunities!

Our children are 7 and 10 and enjoyed this thoroughly. Although having seen how small the attraction was we had to keep telling them to slow down and read the signs. The rooms are fantastic and you could keep going round the attraction until you'd seen enough.
Pricing was ok but would have been nice to have something to take away or a quiz to do for the children going round just to make them stop and look a little harder.
Shop had a brilliant range of gifts and the riddle corner was fun too.

Trying to find something to do out of the rain is part of going to the Lakes but this place was well worth it! For only £3.75 you get lots of weird and wonderful things to look at that keep you confused for a long time!!!

This little museum is a great way to while-away an hour or so on a wet day in Keswick. It's filled with fun optical illusions to interact with. It also has a shop with puzzles for you to try out for free.
