Always wanted to be more creative in photo-taking? Running out of ideas on how to take some wacky shots?
Head on to the latest unusual museum in Singapore. Located right in town, Suntec City Mall, the Alive Museum Singapore offers the biggest and most successful chain of Illusionary Entertainment Attraction unlike any other.
Driven by a passion for Art works, Alive Museum is supported by an R&D team in Korea, and every artwork you see is hand painted by their artists. The Art Museum was first known as Trick Art Museum when it originated from Seong-eup, Jeju Island, Korea. Then in 2012, the name was changed to Alive Museum and currently, the chain has expanded to Tutkey, Vietnam, Thailand, China and latest in Singapore.
Thanks to omy’s invite, we visited the museum last week and was treated to an eye-opener time. The museum is separated into three parts – Trick Art, Digital Art & Object Art.
Trick Art was popular in Baroque era in 16th century. Using 3D painting techniques, these art pieces trick your eyes and stimulate your mind into seeing both illusion and reality at the same time.
Digital Art combines state-of-the-art technologies and the art to enable visitors to experience art beyond what is seen, and enjoy art pieces like never before.
Object Art are sculptures and installations that challenge our senses. Do you believe what you see? Touch and be part of the sculpture pieces for an immersive experience and picture stories that will astound your friends.

What is my review of the place?
I’ve been to Trick Eye Museum @ RWS, and I think both are equally interesting with its different art pieces to woo me. One thing not as appealing at AMS is the lighting, as the place is generally dimmer thus the need to have spot lights around the places or usually on top of the art pieces to illuminate, hence the stronger light (or shadow) on the face. Another point is AMS does not have large art pieces for larger group to pose, as compared to TEM. However, the opposite is for smaller group (less than 5), AMS presents a better place to visit.
Personally, I like the room concept at AMS, it gives us a bit of privacy just with friends when no other strangers are there.
Having said all, I think the most important factor that makes either visit to AMS or TEM fun and memorable, is who we visit with. With the right group of friends, the fun is doubled instantly, plus a good photographer, the experience can be pretty good.
