Twist is an immersive, interactive museum. The exhibits are illusions that challenge your senses – from small scale interactive ones you can get up close and personal with, to large scale installations you can step into. Expect to learn about how you experience colour, perspective, shape, sound, heat and more.
It really depends on how long you like to look, listen and think! In general, you can expect your visit to last between 45 to 90 minutes once inside the exhibition space.
