Since its opening in June 2014, many people have had fun doing wacky poses with the various art pieces at the Trick Eye Museum in Singapore. The museum has now refreshed its gallery with new sculptures, an interactive 4D concept and new themed zones – “Mystery”, “Excitement”, “Fairytale”, “Fantasy”, “Supernatural” and “Trick World”. More than half the museum has been updated with the new artworks and these were ready on 31 October 2015.
I was curious about the displays and worked through my usual lunch hour so that I could get out of the office during the mid-afternoon to attend the media preview. ^_^
New sculptures can already be found outside the museum – you can pose with Andy Warhol…
…or share some love with Mona Lisa!
Alternatively, how about taking a selfie with this lady taking a selfie? :p
When you enter the museum, you can see that iconic Big Baby sculpture is still there, as well as a bunch of circus folk. However, there are some additions placed between the existing sculptures, like this lady with hula hoops,…
…and Andy Warhol balancing on some chairs!
This horse and carriage (also new!) took up quite a substantial space in this area.
A Rubik’s Cube has been placed just before the gigantic book entranceway which leads to the other exhibition zones.
If you enter and turn to the right, you will see the following new animated and interactive exhibits…
Fancy turning yourself into an Andy Warhol-themed painting?
Dancing Star – there are 2 choices available and you can opt for the Chinese theme or Christmas theme. The little kids visiting the museum seemed to enjoy this exhibit a lot and kept going back for more!
When I finally got my turn, I decided to try the Christmas theme first and was transformed into a Santarina!
The Chinese one was a bit cheesy to me. Do note that you have to try to align your face as best as possible to the screen before your picture is taken – mine wasn’t done quite correctly! LOL…
I concluded that this wasn’t my cup of tea and much preferred the static 3D exhibits.
I think this is my favourite out of all the zones!
Fancy taking shelter with a Frog?
Waterfall – you can pose on that tree stump or across that gaping hole as seen two pictures above.
Alice House – Yikes! Looks like Alice is stuck here!
Flower Ball – Try imagining yourself being trapped in a water bubble in this picture.
Hmm…do you think a hunk or babe would look better in this setting?
I noted that “The Scream” has been removed from its previous picture frame and now has a bigger backdrop.
Teddy Bear – doesn’t he look 3D? ^_^
Sit and get transported somewhere else by this couple!
Afternoon Tea Parties – I don’t know why but I just love this picture!!
Ice Cliff – You can play hero and damsel in distress here. However, I wouldn’t recommend that you wear heels if you are perched on a precarious ledge like this!
Ice Wall Climb – You can have fun thinking up various poses for this one!
This is a brand new zone which focuses on the supernatural.
That ballet-themed wall is still there, plus the Merlion.
Art Fighter – this is one of the more interactive exhibits as it includes a fighting game.
If you’re not into practising some kungfu moves in the game, you can still pose for a 3D photo. ^_^
Overall, the new exhibits are fun to interact with. Have an enjoyable time posing with them when you visit the museum! ^_^
Thanks to Trick Eye Museum Singapore for the invite to the media preview!
