Illusion Tunnel

What’s real? What’s not? How is what you see different from what really is? Can the train rumble down the line into the tunnel?

Using forced perspective, you’re drawn into this place to test your perceptions. Plus, there’s a great platform at the top to spy on all the fun going on at the museum!
