Question of Perception

Question of Perception

Come and explore a world where nothing is as it seems. Intriguing illusions and strange experiences will delight all ages in our new exhibition. You will be left wondering if you can trust your eyes, brain or senses.

In a Question of Perception you can have your whole universe tilted in our Wacky Salon or grow and shrink in the Ames room. You can even look into infinity. There are visual illusions, physical challenges and mind-bending puzzles to engage your brain. Every exhibit will make you rethink how you experience the world.

*Exhibition Opening Spring 2017*

And, look out for an exciting new series of evening talks, A Question of Perception Lectures, starting 12 April! First up, is vision scientist, Ben Craven with "Colour - The Science behind the Sense". Along with the fascinating 1 hour lecture in our Science Show Theatre, there's time to explore the interactive exhibition on Floor 1 too. Tickets are just £10 and available to book online here!


In preparation for the new exhibition, part of Floor 1 will be closed for renovation between the 20 February and 29 March 2017. Between the 11 - 26 March there will be no access to the small passenger lift from Floor 1. However, the larger passenger lift will remain accessible from Floor 1 throughout this period.
