    Puzzles and Illusions Gallery

Nothing is as it seems and everything requires some clever thinking.

Straight lines look curved, black-and-white images look coloured, still pictures move, and your reflection distorts beyond recognition. Challenge your family to a puzzle at our tables with ropes, metal rings and wooden blocks.

Try some illusion science at home with our Teacher and Parent Resources.

Have you ever dreamed of flying? Soar to new heights with Birdly®, an immersive virtual reality experience coming soon to Science World.
