We took our sons ages 5, 7, and 12. They had a blast going through the exhibit - especially the 'spinning tunnel'. I thought it was definitely unique, but for the number of exhibits it was a little pricey.

Visited here with my husband and adult daughter. Fun exhibits that will exercise the mind and make you laugh. (As well as providing photo ops!) Small shop with really nice wooden puzzles and other great gifts. Museum is in a great location too!

We visited the museum with our 12, 9,7,5 and 3 year old. I would say our oldest three had the most fun and looked closely at all the puzzles. Our youngest still had fun but also had a shorter attention span. One review said the...More

Although interesting, don't believe it was worth $10/person. (We even got discounts. Could have been $12-$15/person). It's a small room, most illusions are on the wall in form of prints Only few interactive. Took approx 45 min for 5 of us. I'd say it's worth...More

Thank you for your review, Stephanie! Sounds like the kids couldn't get enough of the museum :) Surely 45 minutes of educational entertainment is worth more than 10 minutes of laser tag?

Reviewed 7 November 2018

Well worth 15 bucks as it provided a little over an hour of entertainment. Very fascinating and excellent for unique photo opportunity. It is located at the union station where you can visit other attractions like science city and an excellent restaurant.

Thank you for your review, Shawn! Glad you enjoyed and appreciated our Museum!

Reviewed 5 November 2018

We really enjoyed our visit! It has several attractions and each one taught you something. The kids really enjoyed it as well...but, so did the adults. It's a bit pricey for how small it is...but, still worth it. Of course, it's a place we'd only...More

Thank you for the review, Annie! Our architect did the best he could with our 3000sf. And we think it turned out very efficient and ergonomic. Great review though. I couldn't have written it better myself. Thanks again! P.S. I want to bet the kids...More

It was an awesome experience, the illusions were quite mind blowing.. My 13 year old son really enjoyed his time in the exhibit. Definitely worth checking out.
