Another rainy-day activity to keep the little ones entertained when the weather outside is frightful. We were at Sentosa the other day with some friends and had originally intended to take the kids to the wet playground. It was a good thing we changed our mind because it started to pour! Fortunately, we were happily taking photos at Trick Eye Museum.
Trick Eye Museum is located at Resorts World Sentosa and a perfect place to retreat to when it’s too hot/ too rainy for the beach or Universal Studios. Two-dimensional images come to life at Trick Eye Museum, no 3D glasses needed! We had so much fun hamming it up for the camera and the kids enjoyed themselves too. Here are some of the many photos we took there.
Some tips for Trick Eye Museum:
- No short skirts or low-riding pants. You will need to sit on things or even lie down to create some of the optical illusions and you really don’t want to be flashing complete strangers in the process.
- Check that your camera is fully charged. I brought along an extra battery for my camera but realised that it was flat. Good thing I had taken almost all the photos I wanted to take by then and switched to my phone camera for the rest.
- Be considerate of the people around you. Do a quick scan before you walk past any of the paintings to avoid accidentally photobombing someone else’s photo.
- Stand at the suggested photo point to take your photo but also ensure that you get the correct angle so you can achieve a convincing optical illusion. For example, in the photo where I’m ‘walking’ on the tightrope, you need to make sure you get the line of the tightrope straight.
Trick Eye Museum is fun for the whole family and very children-friendly because they are allowed to touch everything! You don’t have to worry about forcing them to pose for pictures because they will be more than happy to see pictures of themselves in all sorts of wacky situations.
