[Korean Museum] Be (Dis)illusioned at Alive Museum

Now you see it, now you don't!  Have you ever been disillusioned by what you think you saw?  Get imaginative and let's see how your eyes can play tricks on you (or your friends), at the Alive Museum Singapore!

Located at Suntec City, downtown of Singapore, Alive Museum Singapore is South Korea's first and original 3D illusionary museum.  This is the place where 3D art (including trick art, digital art, object art and experimental art) comes alive with clever painting, shading and drawing techniques.  Globally, Alive Museum has 15 branches spreading from South Korea to China, Thailand, Vietnam, Turkey and now Singapore!

Believe it or not, all the artworks are hand-painted and hand-crafted by the museum's dedicated R&D team.  To keep up the exciting experience, 30% of the exhibits are refreshed every year!  To kick start, the following are my 10 favourite exhibits:

Number 10: Help!  Don't eat me!
Number 9: Contortionist at the Circus
Number 8: Table Tennis Match
Number 7: Mermaid under the Sea
Number 6: Push!
Number 5: Mini Me!
Number 4: Stepping into a Bottomless Pit

Number 3: Elephant Taxi

Number 2: Baby Armstrong

Number 1: Dodging a Flying Foot

With over 80 masterpieces including 9 local-themed exhibits unique to Singapore, be prepared to spend about 3 hours to comfortably experience all the exhibits.  Especially for visits during weekday evenings or weekends, some exhibits will have longer queues.  If you are going in small groups (eg. 2 persons), the friendly staff are always ready to help with photography.

If you can't get enough of the exhibits in thie 10,000 sq ft museum, you should consider making a trip to visit the largest branch at Jeju Island, which is 4 times bigger!
