The Museum of Illusions is in our back yard.

Contributed by Pete Lovering. I remember going to the science centre as a kid and my favourite area was always the place where you could be in the optical illusion rooms. I seem to remember it looked like the room was slanted or you were standing on the ceiling and that sort of thing. I loved it.

 
Now take what you remember of the science centre illusions, multiply by 50, modernize it and you will have over 80 illusions, holograms and exhibits. The Museum of illusions suggests that they “offer a sensory and proprioceptive experience.” They are not wrong. And if you are like me and do not know what  “proprioceptive” here is what it means:
pro·pri·o·cep·tive
adjective: proprioceptive – relating to stimuli that are produced and perceived within an organism, especially those connected with the position and movement of the body.

 

That just about sums it up. The museum is an interactive must for kids and adults. It is fun, mind altering and just around the corner on Front Street.
