Topsy Turvy


Opening Monday 24 June!

Step into a world of illusion and surprise at Wellingtons latest interactive play space.

Designed for tamariki aged 0-5 and their caregivers, aTopsy Turvy your senses will lead the way as you explore with your eyes, ears, hands and feet!

👁️ Treat your eyes by gazing at the spinner wall, warped mirrors and light up tables. 

👂 Let your ears guide you around auditory illusions, from a surround sound bath to images that come alive with sounds when you touch them.
