Alive Museum Singapore

A few weeks ago, we went to check out the Alive Museum, one of the illusory entertainment museums originating in Korea and now starting to open around the world. We’ve never been to one, so we didn’t quite know what to expect, but look at the photos! It turned out to be such a fun outing, even for our dad! The idea behind the museum is that you interact with a variety of clever paintings, art pieces, glasses and mirrors, to create visual effects which make for playful, entertaining pictures! With a pinch of creativity (you don’t need a lot as how to interact with each piece is explained to you) and (ahem) shamelessness, we put on a pair of angel wings, floated on a paper boat, performed gravity-defying hand stands, fought a samurai…

To enjoy this museum to the fullest, you’d want to go with a group of friends and spend at least 1.5 hours in the museum, more if it’s crowded. The ticket would set you back SGD 25 per adult, but you could get a ticket for SGD 20 using their current online promotion. Check the Visitor Info on their website for opening hours and how to get there.
