Hello, thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review! We’re delighted that you enjoyed your time with us. With over 100 interactive exhibitions and the 165-year-old Camera itself, we think there’s something to intrigue and bamboozle everyone. We find that most visitors spend up to 2 hours exploring the building, and with our All-Day Ticket letting you come and go until we close we think that we provide a unique day out that’s value for money. Thanks again for your lovely review, and we hope to see you again soon.
Look to see and do at camera obscura. Preferred walking about in the museum rather than the talk upstairs which was more geared for young kids but still interesting. Worth the money
Hi John, thank you for leaving a review. We’re glad to hear you enjoyed your visit. With over 100 interactive exhibitions as well as an All-Day Ticket we do feel our ticket provides good value for money. Thanks again for taking the time to review us and we hope to see you again soon!
We had scheduled a bike tour that was cancelled due to extremely high winds, so we ended up here. It is well done, and the actual camera obscura is fascinating. It also gave us excellent views of all of Edinburgh and we learned several things from our camera operator. Our daughters, 13 and 14, really enjoyed our time going through the rest of the exhibits as did my husband and I. It was a unique visit and nice break from castles and museums and worth a look especially if you have teens and tweens.
Hello Joe, thanks for your lovely review! We’re delighted to hear that you and your family had a good time with us. With over 100 interactive exhibitions we think there’s something for everyone to enjoy and the views from the Camera and the rooftop terrace certainly are spectacular. We hope you got some good pictures and hope to see you back with us soon.
I took my two teens to this "museum" at the recommendation of the cafe owner where we had breakfast In Edinburgh. We spent a delightful hour+ experiencing the exhibits, many of which were amazing illusions from the 19th century.
It was a wonderful time. Highly recommend.
Hi Beth – thanks so much for the wonderful review! We are happy to learn that you and your kids had a fun day out with us. Thank you for visiting us and we hope to see you again soon.
This was ok but a bit pricey for the time we spent there, we were only waiting in line for a few minutes and got student discount which was nice, it took around 40 minutes to do the entire place as a couple. Tt was full of screaming young kids which made the whole experience frustrating and annoying. It was way too cramped for the amount of people that were in as well. The illusions and things were good and different to see especially the holographic pictures. Definitely appreciate the spider warning for the giant spider picture. Got all the way to the top and it was so warm and full of people rushing about we didnt stay for the "show" but thats fine. Would definitely recommend going first thing and off peak rather than middle of the day, during school holidays/trips and summer.
Hello, thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed our illusions and holographic picture gallery, this is a highlight for many of our visitors.

Thank you for letting us know about your visit and we hope you will visit us again.
A great place for young and old. Excellent displays but the real attraction is of course the camera obscura. Dan is an amazing presenter who makes it all so much fun.
