Trick Eye Museum at RWS, where seeing is not really believing

Trick Eye Museum Singapore has unveiled new exhibits on 31 Oct 2015. Check out the new displays.


Welcome to Trick Eye Singapore

See yourself levitating. Become a giant. Join the circus.

Look the part in these scenes and more, at the Trick Eye Museum at Resorts World Sentosa, soon to open on 8 June 2014.

Trick Eye Museum is one of Korea’s top museum since it opened in 2010 and it is best known for using optical illusions to make images look realistically 3-D. They make awesome one-of-a-kind photos for a generation sold on selfies and Instagram.

Trompe, what?

This illusion technique is based on trompe l’oeil, originally a French term meaning ‘deceive the eye’. It’s an art technique that uses realistic imagery, precise dimensions and optical illusion to make 2-D images look 3-D.

Remember those realistic street art that makes you feel like you could just fall in? It’s a similar concept.

What’s unique about the Singapore museum?
