Loved the illusion rooms, so interesting and mind bending! Probably took me too long to do the easy challenge for the maze, but it was still fun. The toilets out the back are hilarious. Had to queue to take photos out the front, it was so popular. A great day out (that was meant to be a few hours)!!!

Absolutely loved our time spent at the Antarctic center so informative and interactive really authentic.

Well-designed and well-designed center with all kinds of unique experiences.
