One day as I was looking for a place to relax and have fun, I stumbled upon the newly opened museum in Resorts World Sentosa – the Trick Eye Museum. Opened last June, it is located at Resorts World Sentosa, 26 sentosa gateway #01-43/44 Singapore 098138.
And since we really had fun at Madame Tussauds in Hong Kong just by taking pictures, I was pretty sure that it would be the same. It is a must visit tourist attraction in South Korea, China, and Hong Kong.
A little bit of history, Trickeye museum is an interactive museum with a new concept that stimulates your creativity and imagination using the TROMPE-L’OEIL technique through your vision. TROMPE-L’OEIL means “trick of the eyes” in French.
Entrance fee: 25 SGD for Adult and 20 SGD for Child and Senior. Operating hours: Monday – Sunday (10 AM to 9 PM)
- We were supposed to go on a weekend however we read from a review site that it tends to be crowded during weekends and the place is quite small so we opted to just go on a weekday after office.
- 8 PM is their last check in so be sure to go on or before that time.
- Be sure to bring lotsa creativity with your poses.
- It’s more fun if you bring your friends with you, although you can ask the staff to take photos of you.
- Of course, don’t forget to bring your cameras!
How to get here:
- Board the train towards Harbourfront station (Northeast and Circle Line).
- Enter Vivo City mall and go to the highest floor (sorry can’t remember how many floors).
- Look for Resorts World Sentosa ticket information and counter then purchase a boarding ticket for Sentosa Express, eventually you can use your EZ Link if you have one. Fare: 4 SGD. (Tickets to the Trick Eye museum are only available for purchase on-site.)
- Alight at the next station, the Waterfront station.
- Walk straight ahead, passed by the Universal Studios (USS) and follow the signs pointing to the museum.
Some of my favorites…
The following are Rated PG (Parental Guidance required). LOL.
There is one artwork that is prohibited. I got dismayed.
His and her version. LOL.
We can’t stop laughing at this. Even the man who saw us just laughed out loud. Haha.
So yeah, it was fun! Although I was disappointed at how few the artworks are and the space is small its hard to take photos sometimes. It took us only 30 minutes to finish picture taking maybe because there is only few people in there. However, we were thinking if there’s a lot of people then we need to wait and queue, so it really depends. We also think that 25 SGD is quite too much but we had fun so that’s all that matters. 🙂
