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!

I saw this place on trip advisor and decided to take my partner, it was a little bit difficult to find as it is a doorway with stairs leading upto it.
It was around £3 in, which in think is about right for the size of the exhibit.
There are lots of interesting things to look at and participate in here, mainly optical illusions and it makes for interesting photos.
I also liked that they had puzzles out for you to have a go at in the shops.
Great little original find to pass a little bit of time.

This is such a great place for all ages. Everyone loved doing each of the illusions.
Well worth allowing one or two hours for.

This is brilliant and great fun. If you are in or around Keswick, it is a must see attraction. Many many puzzles and illusions to look at, ponder and wrap your head around.
Just one tip, when taking a photo of the little person on the chair illusion, don't try and zoom in, it ruins the illusion on the photo. You'll know exactly what i mean when you visit!

Enjoyed this place as theres lots to get involved with . Very good for children and adults alike. A nice diversion on a wet and cold day.

This little tribute to the optical illusion is a fun way to spend an hour or so, especially with younger family members.

Some of the exhibits are quite old hat, but there is enough to keep the attention of most visitors.
