Optical Illusions

Our little local museum has been getting a make-over recently, including a move to a new (and bigger) location and an overall face-lift.  As they are putting the final finishing touches on everything, they have invited people in to explore it free of charge, up until the official grand re-opening.

We headed over today and really enjoyed a great exhibit on optical illusions.  The kids were a bit freaked out by some of the tricks, especially the painting whose eyes followed you around the room.  It was great to see all of the tricks that our eyes and brains can play on us, and even better to learn a bit about how they actually work.
