GREAT NEWS! TripAdvisor Travellers Choice Award 2013 - Camera Obscura is officially the top landmark attraction in Scotland and no. 2 in the UK, based on millions of reviews and opinions from travellers around the world!
We are open every day 10.00-18.00, (20.00 during half terms and holidays). Allow two hours, though you can stay for as long as you like (and many stay longer than two hours!)
Your ticket is valid all day! If you want to nip out for lunch or coffee, or visit in the morning, then come back later on, simply get your hand stamped and you can come and go as you please. This is very popular with our visitors!
If you arrive late and don't have time to see everything, we give you a free pass to come back the next day.
We guarantee your visit - if you feel it is not up to your expectations we will refund your admission ticket - no quibbles! 99% of visitor feedback is glowing, but if you feel differently we want to know why so that we can do something about it.
We also guarantee to be open during our published hours, whatever the weather, every day (except December 25th) The attraction is fantastic fun for all ages, all weathers, so come and enjoy!
Lastly we guarantee that we are here for you, 100%. We want you to have an excellent time with us, and we will do everything we can for this to happen.
||The Camera Obscura Show
Please note that as the Camera Obscura show works with daylight, the last show finishes 20 minutes before sunset. The exhibitions are usually open much later and the rooftop terrace gives great views over the city. If you arrive once the last show is over (or fully booked), we have two ticket options:
- a full price ticket valid for the rest of the day and the next day too,
-or a discounted ticket (10% off) for entry to the four floors of exhibitions and rooftop terrace for the rest of the day.
We regret we are not taking online bookings at the moment, however for groups of 10 or fewer people there is no need to pre-book tickets - just come along on the day - your entry is guaranteed!
Latest exhibits: Light painter - paint with light, and Autowed, which will marry you, renew vows or make you best friends forever. For £1 it carries out a brief ceremony and gives you two rings and a personalised certificate. It is only the second in the world, featured on Dragons' Den and is a fun and possibly moving way to end the visit. We will continue to introduce new exhibits from our ever-expanding list of ideas. We hope you enjoy playing with our new toys as much as we do! See more here: http://local.stv.tv/edinburgh/going-out/articles/191557-bound-for-a-pound-with-robotic-wedding-machine/
