Transform into an angel, blast off in a canon, touch the moon and more at the new Trick Eye Museum at Resorts World Sentosa (RWS)! 

First started and made popular in South Korea, the renowned Trick Eye Museum is the original three-dimensional art gallery which has since spawned many copycats around the world. This museum at RWS is their first overseas venture and opened its door in Singapore on 8 June 2014.

There are still many more installations.

“We are excited to extend our reach to Singapore and it is a great honour to be collaborating alongside Resorts World Sentosa in this much anticipated project,” said Ms Sujin Oh, Curator of Trick Eye Museum.

Look what's for dinner!

“We are looking forward to sharing our wonderful works of art based on Trompe-l’oeil. Our greatest fulfillment will be the looks of awe and amazement on people’s faces. Trick Eye Museum will be a perfect addition to the family-friendly attractions in the resort.”

Mr Goh Chye Boon, Executive Vice President of Resort Operations at Resorts World Sentosa, added: “Photo-taking is one of the must-do activities for visitors at our resort and Trick Eye Museum provides the perfect opportunity. The opening of Trick Eye Museum will not only bolster our line-up of attractions and enliven our resort’s waterfront but will also provide more opportunities for guests to bond, create moments to remember and share for a lifetime with their loved ones.”

This museum is highly recommended for the selfies and welfies generation who likes to take lots of photos of themselves. Parents with kids will love this too. My son Asher had a lot of fun running around the museum, checking out the various camera tricks.

One-day admission tickets to Trick Eye Museum at Resorts World Sentosa are priced at S$25 for adults and S$20 for children/seniors. Multi-attraction packages are also available. Guests can purchase tickets and packages onsite or online via the RWS website.

To complement the opening of Trick Eye Museum, more Korean-themed F&B and retail concepts will also open at the Resort’s Waterfront, creating a Korean cluster. Opening in the third quarter of 2014, Insadong Korea Town will feature a Korean market-place concept offering a variety of authentic Korean F&B specialties, street food, as well as hand-made Korean trinkets, cosmetics and accessories.
