Visit Camera Obscura and the World of Illusions where seeing is not believing! We are very much pet friendly. Our exhibits are spread out over 6 floors and most floors have plenty of space, with a lovely rooftop terrace on the 6th. Dogs are even welcome to come into the Camera Obscura Show as long as the other visitors are comfortable, we just require that they be kept on a lead during their visit.
