Do you believe your eyes? Can you trust your senses? And is anything really as it seems? These are just some of the questions posed by "ILLUSION: Nothing Is As It Seems," the mind-bending new exhibition at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center. Created by Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin, "ILLUSION" playfully combines techniques used by magicians and explored by neuroscientists to uncover the many ways our minds are fooled by sensory deception.

The exhibit will be on display May 10, 2014-Jan. 11, 2015!
"ILLUSION" joins magic with psychology, optical illusions with scientific reasoning and confusion with clarity. More than 20 intriguing exhibits deceive the eyes of the visitor, showing that what we perceive is often radically different from the reality we observe. "ILLUSION" will distort your senses and mystify your mind.

Gallery Admission:
$13 for Adults 13 & up
$11 for juniors (3-12yrs)
$12 for seniors 65 & up
