Opening its doors in June 2014, the Sentosa Trick Eye Museum is the 1st international venture from the Korea / Korean Trick Eye Museum company. It's named for 'Trick of the Eye', which refers to their reowned technique of turning 2 dimensional paintings and artworks into 3 dimensional images through the use of optical illusions. The Sentosa Trick Eye Museum showcases almost 90 pieces of optical illusion artwork specially created for Singapore.

Visitors are highly encouraged to interact with, and touch the exhibits, as well as photograph themselves for a memorable experience. The Sentosa Trick Eye Museum consists of 6 themed zones. 'World Of Masterpieces' showcases classical paintings from Western artists that you can step into and became part of. 'Safari Kingdom' allows you to strike various poses with illusions of wild animals, while 'Star Of Circus' puts you on an illusionary stage at a carnival.

The Sentosa Trick Eye Museum also has 'Dreams Of Fairy Tale', where you can step into a fantasy world. 'Love In Winter' was probably the most confusing themed zone for me, as it mixes high fantasy with a winter / snow theme, but I'm not sure where the 'Love' fits in. The 'Adventure Discovery' is a hybrid of sports related illusions and cultural inspired artworks. The layout of the Sentosa Trick Eye Museum is linear, so you'll definitely pass by all the exhibits during your visit.

I like that Sentosa Trick Eye Museum staff are helpful, stationed around to guide you how best to interact with the exhibits, and help you take photographs if needed. I also like that each major exhibit has an instruction sheet in pictorial form, showing you how to strike various poses with the exhibit, as well as where to stand to get the best angles for photographs. Several of the optical illusion paintings and artwork were memorable for me, including the Ames Room, Hanging Upside Down, Skydiving, Levitation Chair, Moon Over The Sky, Angel's Wings, Little Match Girl, and Levitation.

If you're planning a visit to the Trick Eye Museum, do note that admission fees cost SGD $25, and allocate between 1 to 2 hours for viewing. Also, it's important to visit the washroom before you even queue to enter, as there are no toilets within the premises, and re-entry is not allowed once you exit. They also have several photography tips to ensure you get the best looking photos, and for the best experience, it's best to visit in groups of at least 3 - 4 people or more, as some of the exhibits require 2 people to interact while the 3rd person takes the photo.
