5/ 5

Really enjoyed this place. Worth visiting as a local and as a tourist. The price was reasonable. We enjoyed every level of the building which were all crammed with great illusions and things to do. There wasn't too many people which may have affected the experience as it's only a small building. We also thought it was very considerate that they include alcohol hand gel for your usage as a lot of the exhibits are interactive. The view from the top was also great and would be somewhere worth viewing the sunset from - which you could do as you get a stamp so you can return any time on the day you visit. The view was affected only by the stands on the parade ground currently in place which meant you couldn't see the castle. Finally the staff were lovely and every person we interacted with was kind, friendly and funny. All in all an enjoyable experience.

4/ 5

Wonderful for the children! + sweet personnel ++ Many different, funny and tricky scientific pieces. + Very informative. Great for tourists to learn about the Scottish history! + Good for almost all ages (3-99 years)! - Only minus was the price but because of the many things to see, do and learn it was absolutely worth it!

5/ 5

Lived in Edinburgh my whole life but had never been here before. It's brilliant! Took my niece and we had a ball. Tickets aren't cheap, and you may be thinking it's too expensive for something crammed into such a small building, but there's so much to do. We had more fun here than we did at Dynamic Earth or the zoo. Little one loved it (and the big kid in me did too). Ticket lasts all day so you can leave for lunch and go back as often as you like. Highly recommended.

This museum is fantastic!!! All about illusions, points of view, and perspective in a very fun and hands on sort of way. Great show as well on the top floor -- Beth, our guide -- was amazing. We had a great time. We came 3 adults, and it was wonderful. Great for kids, too!

5/ 5

A must visit for anyone visiting Edinburgh looking for a bit of fun. Lots of fun magic/illusion themed 'exhibits' inside including a tunnel that's completely still but makes you really dizzy - it has to be seen for yourself! Make sure you visit on a clear day for the Camera Obscura part where they show you Edinburgh City Centre projected onto a table and zoom into people using magnification techniques. Quite clever considering it's old techniques and literally just using light and perspective. Fantastic views of Edinburgh from the outdoors top as well.
