Singapore Trick Eye Museum Renewal Preview

Earlier this week, Ottie and I were treated to an exclusive Trick Eye Renewal Preview Event at the Singapore branch in Sentosa. Their branch in Korea originally contacted me about it, since I wrote about my visit to the Trick Eye Museum in Seoul last year, but I’ve been based in Singapore for a while now, and the one right here underwent a renewal too! The Singapore Trick Eye Museum is located at Waterfront Station (accessible via the monorail, boardwalk, and bus from the main island of Singapore), and thereafter it’s short work of navigating through the barrage of food, sights, and the tempting selfie opportunity in front of the Universal Studios Singapore globe located in the center.

Anyway, the new exhibits are pretty cool! We had a great time monkeying around trick of the eye pieces both new and familiar:

The 4D interactive displays were fun! I had a workout at some of them, virtually and physically:

Here’s what I wore for the preview! I went with a simple black outfit to differentiate myself from the colourful painted illusions, and a pair of my trusty culottes because well, if you’re going to be wearing a skirt to the museum, you’d better make sure you’re wearing nice undies.

Bowl of Tortillas and a cup of chilli at Chili's, Sentosa, Singapore. Flatlay of goodies from Trick Eye Museum Renewal Event goodie bag.We had dinner at Chili’s, being too tired after exploring the exhibits to wander far in search of food. I took the opportunity to spread out my goodies from the goodie bags we received! The table pattern was too nice to resist.

We even got a worldwide passport to all the Trick Eye Museum branches! I can’t wait to use it whenever Ottie and I revisit Korea and their renewed pieces (plus a love museum!).
