Camera Obscura and World of Illusions - Magic Gallery

Magic Gallery

The Magic Gallery houses some of our most electrifying exhibits, a great variety of cool optical illusions and hands-on, interactive experiences. Like every aspect of your visit, it's also great fun! 

The Magic Gallery Plasma Tubes and Globes, bring electricity right to your fingertips. You can literally light up the room by using your hands to connect our giant Plasma Ball to a light tube on the wall. Don’t worry if you feel the spark as a tiny shock- it’s a very small current, which is quite safe.

Explore classic optical illusions including maddening magic eye pictures, some examples of which are available in the gift shop as souvenirs. Become a 'big head' with the giant lens. Swap noses and heads with your friends, or shake hands with virtually yourself. Don't miss the Shadow Wall, which captures your shadow in a flash!
