Disclosure: I partnered with Sci-Tech Discovery Center to share this information on their Eyellusions Exhibit. All opinions are my own.
The Sci-Tech Discovery Center Eyellusions Exhibit takes visitors behind-the-scenes of some of the greatest illusions of all time. This fun, family experience explores some of the most well-known phenomena to explain just how they did it!
We’ve lived in Frisco for the past six years, but this was our first visit to the Sci-Tech Discovery Center. Man, I wish we had gone sooner! There are so many things to explore in the museum itself. My son could have spent hours playing at the huge bubble station and building with the blocks.
Sci-Tech Discovery Center Eyellusions Exhibit
You can experience the Sci-Tech Discovery Center Eyellusions Exhibit from now through January 3, 2016. The display features more than 20 installations.
The incredible Zoetrope is a pre-film animation device where 12 wooden horse sculptures appear to be running.
This time machine uses a pepper’s ghost effect so that guests seem to disappear before the audience. My son *loved* this one and kept going back inside to try to figure out what happened!
After your trip back in time, visit the land of the dinosaurs where kids can dig for bones and meet dinosaurs in real life!
The Alice in Wonderland Ames room allows guests to look big or small depending on their position in the room. The whole display is inspired by the revelations in David Day’s Decoding Wonderland book.
This Victorian version of the infamous black and blue (or white and gold) dress that “broke the internet” was so cool! Play with the light intensity to discover what makes it change color.
That’s just a few of the illusions that we got to explore at the Sci-Tech Discovery Center Eyellusions Exhibit.
