A feature exhibition at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences in downtown Raleigh is encouraging visitors to put their brains to the test via mind-boggling adventures, 3D puzzles and full-body games. The exhibit winds its way over 6,500 square feet, with more than 60 experiences that inspire exploration and ingenuity.

You can test your perceptions and laugh your way through the maze of illusions (a feast of visual trickery) or become a “webmaster” by climbing through an intricate network of ropes. Or get lost in the Color Maze and experiment with light, shadow and fluorescence in the black-lit Cosmic Games room.

“Mazes & Brain Games” runs through September 3, 2018. Exhibition hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday (last entry at 4 p.m.). Tickets are free for museum members or $5 per person (ages three and up).

You can get them at the museum’s box office (919-707-9950) or online at naturalsciences.org.
