Last month, two of South Korea’s popular optical illusion museums opened in Singapore — Alive Museum in Suntec and Trick Eye Museum in Sentosa. I have not been to the latter so l will share about our experience with Alive Museum first.
Both museums contain 2D paintings and wall arts that looked 3D in photos. The paintings allow the visitors to be part of the scene and that’s where Alive Museum comes to life!
Here are some photos we had on that day:
While the museum boasts more than 70 artworks, the place was not as huge as it looks. In a small room, you can find 3-4 different arts that overlap each other, meaning, you can’t take a full photo of one without crossing over the other. This is especially difficult when you’re also sharing the place with other visitors. It was almost impossible to take photos properly without people walking or getting in the way. We had to pass on some galleries to avoid inconvenience.
But overall, I enjoyed the whole experience. I have not gone to South Korea yet so this is the first time I have ever been to a trick art museum. We spent about 3 hours here and were exhausted after all the posing and body twisting. Haha! It was actually nice to do silly poses and make fun of yourself. :)
