549 Castlehill, Edinburgh EH1 2ND

Camera Obscura is situated at the top of the Royal Mile next to Edinburgh Castle.  There are various Camera Obscuras throughout the world and the Edinburgh version is fast becoming a popular attraction for familys or adults.

There are 5 levels which offers various types of illusions and interactive exhibits.  The top level is the main attraction with the camera obscura presentation which offers you a panoramic view of the city and even pick up people and cars with your hands!

The other levels have plenty to entertain you also with an electric room where you can conduct electricity, moving pictures which change as you view them from different angles and a mirror maze that you can enter and try and get out of!
