Extended Opening Hours!

Taking advantage of the long summer days we are open from 9.30am until 7.00pm Monday to Thursday, and 9.30am-8.00pm Friday to Sunday.

We recommend you allow about two hours to see everything – although you can stay as long as you like. It will get busy in the middle of the day so come along early and take advantage of the All Day Ticket*! Enjoy part of the visit -  head out for a coffee or some lunch, or even to visit one of the other great experiences close by -  and then come in again to finish your visit anytime that day. Or, if you are looking for something to do later on, come in after dinner to kick off a night of fun - if you arrive too late to see everything, don’t’ worry, we give you a free pass to come back the next day so you don’t miss anything. 


*The All Day Ticket is not available to groups entering on the discounted group rate.

Standard admission prices:

Adult: £14.50    

Student (with ID): £12.50

More than ten people?


Please get in touch with us and book your visit in advance. During the busy summer season we cannot guarantee entrance to groups of ten or more, unless you pre-book.


The good news is, by booking in you get a private showing of the Camera Obscura and priority entrance. Group slots are very limited, with best availability before 10.00am and in the early evenings.

Money Back Guarantee

We are so sure you will have a fantastic time we offer a Money Back Guarantee.

Enjoy a show in the original Camera Obscura, check out the stunning views of Edinburgh from its 360 degree rooftop terrace, visit the five floors of interactive optical trickery in the World of Illusions; find your way out of the magical Mirror Maze, shrink yourself in the amazing Ames Room, try to stay on your feet in the Vortex Tunnel, walk on water without getting wet and lose your head!

If we haven’t managed to put a smile on your face at the end of all that, come and speak to a manager after the visit. We would love it if you can tell us what we should have been doing to make your visit a success, and we will be happy to offer you a full refund*.
