Seeing isn't always believing. Imagination Station’s latest temporary exhibit uses color, light and patterns to create experiences that can trick the eyes and mislead the mind. The Rooms of Illusion opens Friday, February 14.

The Rooms of Illusion features four individually-themed interactive rooms with optical illusions that will challenge visitors’ perceptions and allow them to see everyday surroundings in a whole new light!

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!

Visitors who are crazy about the Gravity Room and other eye-tricking, mind-boggling experiences in the science center’s Mind Zone learning world, will love The Rooms of Illusion!

The Rooms of Illusion is included in science center admission and is presented in partnership with COSI Columbus.

On Saturdays, all Lucas County residents receive a $2 discount and FREE admission for kids 12 and under with paid adult admission, limit two children per adult.
