Venture through five floors jam-packed with over 100 illusions, and remember nothing is what it seems!
We’re reducing our admission prices by 10%. We feel this is a fair reflection of the new visitor experience which will be in place, which includes everything normally on offer, except a demonstration of the Camera Obscura. We’re working quickly on how to make the Camera Obscura demonstration safe with social distancing in place and a new ventilation system.
The reduced 10% ticket price is already applied to all tickets when booking.
Additional discounts (such as Armed Forces, NHS, Edinburgh Bus Tours, etc.) will not be available at this time.

We request that you make every effort to arrive on time. To allow for social distancing there is a one-way route and reduced capacity with a short gap between each person or group entering. If you arrive late, where possible we will admit you. If there are no spaces available we will try to admit you later in the day. However this is not guaranteed as on some days we are fully booked.
We offer free cancellation up to 24 hours in advance to receive a full refund. Please phone or email, providing proof of purchase, as soon as you know you need to cancel.
Camera Obscura retains absolute discretion as to whether refunds will be given if less than 24 hours notice is given.
