Trick Eye Museum {Review and Giveaway}

This is a tricky post *wink* Yeap, we visited the trick eye museum last weekend! A different and interesting kind of museum:
  • It's please touch: Touch anything and everything. Leave the emergency buttons alone though.
  • Interactive: The displays and paintings require your active participation!
  • Trick eye: features approximately 100 oversized optical illusion paintings and installations that trick both your eyes and the camera lens. 

Through the use of optical illusions, 3D paintings on the surfaces of the museum walls, floors and ceilings came alive. The museum offered various themed galleries for visitors to take part and explore with their eyes, hands and cameras too. The moment we entered, Js started getting creative with the displays, and just couldn't keep their hands to themselves. Phew, no restrictions.

You would have probably realised good acts and poses are needed for great photo effects. Not that we were excellent, but it was creatively fun staging these with the kids. Directors we become, while I discovered my little actor and actress.

Outstanding young ballerina

I know pictures speak louder than words, but stay on...

Step inside the paintings, and an act or pose will come into you to complete the picture. It's all naturally easy. Through the lens of your camera a surprisingly tricky story will unfold. There are picture aids at every points to help you with poses and positions, as well as markings on the ground to assist in capturing great angle shots. Just relax and enjoy!

Dress casual. Ladies and little sweeties, leave those dresses and skirts home. Get geared for some work out stunts. Besides doing photography, you might wana consider doing videography too! There will definitely be opportunities for moving acts. After about an hour in the place, we left like we did a great photography work out. It was much exercise within.

We visited on a weekend, and there was a relatively long line outside the museum. It could be a worrying sign for families with little children, but phew! Coming this weekend, they will implement a new queue system whereby time slots will be allocated when the waiting time exceeds 45 minutes. You will just need to arrive at the designated time allocated. This sounds like a great time and energy saver. I very much appreciate their staggered flow of crowd as it gives visitors a manageable and fuss free experience inside. No shoulders to shoulders rub with strangers. It really is some crazy photography fun, for all ages.
