[Media Invite] Alive Museum Singapore Experience

Just recently, I visited the Alive Museum Singapore with a friend, YQ. Located at Suntec City Mall level 3, Alive Museum Singapore is the largest 3D illusionary museum in Singapore, covering an area of 10,000 sq ft. I didn't expect it to be this big until i experience it myself, its actually like a big maze to me. It offers a sensory experience that tricks one's visual, physical and environmental perceptions, bringing fantasy to reality! And yes, we both had so much fun posing with their many masterpieces!

Started in 2009, Alive Museum is the original 3D visual illusion museum from South Korea. Alive Museum is also the world's largest chain of such an entertainment concept, where 3D art comes alive with clever painting, shading and drawing techniques. It also features unique object art and digital art pieces, which are exclusively available at Alive Museum.

With branches in operation at different nations around the world, the Singapore branch is its 15th. Its largest branch so far is in Jeju Island which takes up about 43,000 sq ft of exhibition space.

All the artworks are hand-painted and handcrafted by Alive Museum's own team of talented artists from South Korea to exacting standards, so as to ensure unparalleled quality.

Thanks to its own dedicated R&D team, which painstakingly studies different techniques and paints for the best quality masterpieces.

Where Masterpieces Come Alive,

Art installations that interact with visitors, change their perceptions, warp their physical world, all captured as fun photo memories. They make use of special 3D painting techniques mechanical and digital technologies to create the most fun and engaging illusionary museum in the world.

Trick Art: A very popular during the Baroque era in the 16th century. Using 3D painting techniques, these art pieces trick the eyes and stimulate your mind into seeing both illusion and reality at the same time.

Digital Art: Combines state-of-the-art technologies and art elements so as to let visitors experience art beyond what is seen, and enjoy art like never before.

Object Art: Features sculptures and installations that challenge our senses. Feel and be part of the art pieces for an immersive experience that you will talk about for a long time to come.

Experimental Art: Combines new technology with various digital art concepts for visitors to actively interact with one another.

Dark Room: A brand new development by Alive Museum's R&D Team.

The first art piece,

All the contents in each museum are chosen specially to provide a unique experience that is relevant to each location..

In the 'Disco Room'.. Mirrors everywhere!

HAHA! Love her expression here!

This one here is rather challenging because we really have to bend,

One of my favourite picture with my dear friend,

This is funny,

To stay current and exciting, about 30% of the collections are refreshed every year and special exhibits are held during major holiday seasons such as Christmas and Chinese New Year.

I would suggest to visit the place in groups so that we are able to help take pictures for one another. Try out different poses, even if they seem a little crazy - Go Quirky, interesting fun makes the picture ALIVE! There will be guidance and on duty staff to help out whenever needed. Do look out for Pose Point and check the Photo Point icons on the ground for guide on where to stand for the best pictures. Some camera flashes may be too strong and appear as a blinding spot in photographs. Artworks in Alive Museum are designed for photo-taking without the use of camera flash for best efforts.

Visitors can also enjoy free WiFi at Alive Museum so that they can upload pictures immediately onto their social media networks.
