Art Comes to Life at Trick Eye Museum, Resorts World Sentosa, Singapore

To be honest, I wasn’t too excited about this place at first. I had seen pictures of it a few times on my Facebook feed but I never felt compelled to go.

Whenever we travel, I prefer going to places that are unique to that destination, attractions that you can’t find anywhere else, like a Gardens by the Bay or a Night Safari. Exploding in popularity in recent years, these Trick Eye Museums have opened several branches throughout Asia. They aren’t exclusive to any particular place or culture so in my mind, they wouldn’t be as interesting nor as cool.

I was wrong.

Something happened when we went, something I didn’t really expect. I had FUN. Lots and lots of fun. πŸ˜†

Just a couple exhibits into the museum and Ren and I were already laughing hysterically. I had no idea how much fun it would be to see ourselves in all the pictures! Hamming it up more and more with each exhibit, I felt like a kid again just letting go and having a blast. Admission is normally SGD 25 for adults and SGD 20 for kids, though discounts are available. More information at the bottom of this post.

Here’s Ren going crazy and climbing all the way up to the first rung. πŸ˜† See that round sticker on the floor? There’s one at every exhibit. Look for those to know where to stand to take pictures and create the best illusion.

L: Not sure what I was going for here. Mock trepidation maybe?
R: Sunday funday with Seurat. Do you get the point of this painting? What’s your impression? Badum-tssh.

Though fun with two, the Trick Art Museum is best enjoyed with three or more people. Take this exhibit for example. One person is meant to stick his/her head through the table while another pretends to hold the cloche from behind the picture frame. If there are just two of you, then who snaps the photo? πŸ˜‰

L: Another example of why it’s best to go with at least three people.
R: Hmmm, did I just ruin this illusion by touching the book? *facepalm* There’s a guide for each exhibit so it’s best to look at them before posing.

Don’t lose your footing Ren! A perfect example of why you need to stand on those aforementioned circles to create the best illusion. It looks weird if you take the picture from anywhere else. So cool!
