Eyellusions at Sci-Tech Discovery Center


Step back in time...into a world of illusions at Sci-Tech Discovery Center and visit their new exhibit, Eyellusions!  This Victorian-themed magical fun was a delight for our whole family.

We were amazed by some of the activities like the galloping zoetrope and of course, the non-newtonian fluid (think Oobleck!).  We even got into a time machine!

This piece below was pretty cool.  There are several of these little platforms with funny colors on them and a silver pole going up through the middle.  I couldn't figure it out at first but then I saw the reflection in the pole!  Look how cool that is!


I think everyone's favorite was the visit to Alice in Wonderland's house.  Here's a picture of Stuart and Rachel checking it out.  Nothing too unusual, right?


But when they switched spots, suddenly Rachel grew as tall as Stuart!  This was so fun to play with!


This face/vase is a common illusion but the one at Sci-Tech is especially cool because it rotates and the faces really look like they are talking to each other.  You have to see it in person!


Rachel enjoyed playing with the fairies in the garden!


Nicholas turned Daddy into a doll!


Most everything at Sci-Tech is interactive which my kids just love!  We went back in time and Nicholas controlled a dinosaur.


And Rachel worked on a fossil dig site.
