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!

A good choice for a visit when the weather is not good. A good variety of exhiibits that everyone will find interesting and surprising. Very suitable for children and adults.

This place is great, very mind bending and good fun, we had a great laugh trying out the big and small illusion.

Very good place to visit on a damp day kept us going for over an hour we have been in the shop before, but never been in to see the rest of it.
The anti gravity room was awesome scary but brilliant it was all very good.

I've been a few times here as I live nearby but it just seems to have no money put back into it and maintained. Everything is just getting more worn and tired looking each time I've been. It wouldn't take too much to give everything a coat of paint every so often at the very least. It's only a small space but I'm sure the space could be used a bit more effectively. There could be more interactive illusions, for example the mirror trick that makes it look like your head is on a plate on a table etc, which would give kids something to take part in. As the physically interactive illusions are the better ones. Rather than just lots of holographic pictures taking up one of the rooms. Could switch it up a bit. The place could be so much better, would be a good rainy day activity but just needs a bit more love.

We loved The Puzzling Place as it’s such simple old fashion fun. The building is showing its age and the exhibits too but don’t let it put you off. The entry fee is nominal compared to other places and for what you pay you can’t expect anymore.
There’s some interesting illusions and we had great fun. It’s one of them places that kids won’t forget and our gang have raves about it since our visit. Thank you!
