A unique exhibition based on optical illusion. Witness balls rolling uphill in the antigravity room, visibly grow and shrink in the Ames room and be amazed by our interactive optical illusion exhibits, artwork and sculptures, as well as the hologram gallery!

Cost under £10 for us. One child, one OAP and one adult. It was lots of fun with some great illusions. It’s shop was also well worth a visit. There are no toilets so go before you visit.

Came here for the morning when visiting the area, was well worth the money and time spent gravity room is fascinating. Would recommend for a cheap fun morning/afternoon.

Stumbled upon it during a rainy day in the lakes. For a few quid it was a laugh and the shop sold some interesting stuff too

Great fun for a wet morning in Keswick. The gravity room was a bit unsettling but good fun, we all enjoyed the puzzles

We recently visited The Puzzling Place as a family with one small child, and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.

Visited with 2 young children. What an absolute hidden gem. Throughly enjoyed by the kids and adults. It cost under £15 for the family - A bargain in my opinion. Don’t leave Keswick without visiting.
