The Rooms of Illusion

The Rooms of Illusion

Imagination Station's latest temporary exhibit opens February 14

Included in science center admission.

Prepare to be amazed! The Rooms of Illusion features four individually-themed interactive rooms with optical illusions that will challenge your perceptions and allow you to see everyday surroundings in a whole new light!

Seeing isn't always believing!

Optical Illusion Room: The walls are crawling, the ceiling is spinning and the floor is floating...or are they? This wall-to-wall optical experience will make your head spin...even if the room isn't!

Reflection Room: Immerse yourself in a world of reflection and light! Strategically placed mirrors create an infinity effect that draw you in to take a closer look.

Light Room: The absorption and reflection of light has an effect on the colors we perceive. This room explores how our eyes interpret color under varying lights.

White Room: You will contribute to a kaleidoscope of color! The White Room is a community art piece inspired by Yayoi Kusama's The Obliteration Room. Leave your mark, then come back again and again to see this space transform right before your eyes!

The Rooms of Illusion is presented in partnership with COSI Columbus.

Even more illusions!

  • Beuchet Chair: Discover how a dismantled chair changes your height! It is a powerful and compelling illusion that is sure to delight!

There's more to come!
