Get ready for six floors full of interactive and hands-on fun at Camera Obscura and World of Illusions.

This fascinating way to see the stunning city of Edinburgh and learn about its history will amaze and surprise you! Become a giant as you spy on passers-by in the street below and even pick them up in your hand thanks to the live moving images of the city projected onto a viewing table from a periscope. The Rooftop views are perched high up above the city and give you 360° panoramic views with the help of free high-power telescopes and binoculars.

In Bewilderworld step into a vortex tunnel and see if you can stay on your feet while it spins around you! Catch your shadow and shake it with your hands in the Magic Gallery and in The Puzzling Zone you can watch yourself shrink and grow in the Ames Room and morph into your favourite animal!

A view of the city and of yourself that you’ve never seen before!
