Singapore Travel Diaries: Trick Eye Museum

The Trick Eye Museum is one of Singapore’s newest attraction.  It was opened in public last June 8th of 2014 and it offers a different perspective to its visitors. 

Trick Eye Museum Singapore - Man in the hole

  1. Interactive

    • The displays at the Trick Eye Museum can be touched.  You can be part of the painting, step inside or even crawl to be part of the art pieces.
  2. And by all means, you may take photos with a flash.

Trick Eye is short for ‘Trick of the eye’, which refers to an art technique that turns two-dimensional paintings into three-dimensional images through the use of optical illusions. With that, 2D paintings on the museum walls, floors and ceilings appear to pop out of the surface and come to life.

Trick Eye Museum Singapore - Queue

  • Like any other attractions, weekends are expected to be packed with tourists and locals.  A friendly suggestion, try to book your visit on a weekday.  This will also give you enough time to enjoy and have more shots with the featured portraits.
  • Based on our experience, expect to queue for 30 minutes to an hour before you can enter.  It is highly possible that the waiting time may change if you visit on a weekday.
  • If you are visiting Singapore, try checking their bundle offer with other attractions here.  You can finish the tour in 2 – 2.5 hours maximum, so you will have enough time to check out other attractions in Sentosa.  Hitting two birds with one stone 😉 You are welcome.
  • Don’t forget your cameras.  If you are keen to use a monopod/selfie-stick but do not have any, fret no more because they museum lets you borrow one with no extra charge. Just don’t forget to return them!

  • Before taking a shot, try to check if there are special instructions such as “photographer’s position” mark.  These guides are very helpful in order to achieve the desired effect in the photo.
  • Courtesy at all times.  This one is like one of the golden rules in life, don’t you agree?  Have a great time but do not forget that you did not rent the place and other people would like to have their turn, too.

To date, there are 11 Trick Eye Museums in Asia:

1. South Korea

  • Seoul 
  • Busan
  • Jeju

2. Singapore

  • Sentosa

3. China

  • Jinan
  • Beijing
  • Hong Kong
  • Wuxi
  • Haikou
  • Shenzhen
  • Wuhan


Overall, I had a nice time in the Trick Eye Museum and if ever friends or relatives are coming in town, I would recommend this attraction.

Thank you for reading, until next time. 😉
