Camera Obscura and World of Illusions
The tower has six floors of interactive exhibitions.
On the top floor, you have the Camera Obscura to project a “virtual” tour of the city, and also on the rooftop terrace with its views of Edinburgh and telescopes.
The floors beneath hold the “World of Illusions”, which offers interactive exhibits demonstrating aspects of optical illusions, light, colour. There are also puzzles, a mirror maze, and a vortex tunnel. Although the project is primarily a tourist attraction, it also serves as a learning centre about optical illusions, holograms, the origins of photography and about Edinburgh itself.
