Come the first week of November, Trick Eye Museum Singapore will make a ‘comeback’ with brand new art exhibits and themed zones, as well as never-before 4D elements to enhance visitors’ experience. This will be the first revamp conducted by the Korean-based gallery for its Singapore branch located at Resorts World Sentosa. Renewal works will take place for from 19 to 30 October 2015 and while the museum remains open, visitors are advised to re-schedule their visits to enjoy the enhanced offerings.
The refresh will see six new themed zones replace the museum’s existing themes, and more than half of the museum will be updated with new exhibits. The new exciting themed zones aims to awaken the five senses of the human body by evoking six different emotions stimulated by the zones. These new zones are ‘Mystery’, ‘Excitement’, ‘Supernatural’, ‘Fairytale’, ‘Fantasy’ and ‘Trick World’.
Ms Sue Oh, Brand Manager of Trick Eye Museum Singapore, said, “Trick Eye Museum Singapore has been a popular destination for both locals and tourists alike since we opened our doors more than a year ago. The new themed settings will provide a brand new experience for all our visitors, giving everyone a reason to visit again. New 4D concepts, which debut in the museum’s main branch earlier this year, will also be introduced to heighten the degree of interaction for our guests.”
Besides animations and interactive four-dimensional exhibits, visitors can also expect new sculptures at the museum which will blend perfectly with new illusion paintings to form picture-perfect settings. All new art exhibits are specially designed by Trick Eye Museum’s in-house team of designers from Korea and will be painted by experienced Korean artists.
Trick Eye Museum Singapore celebrated its first anniversary on 19 June 2015 with a series of activities specially arranged to thank everyone for the support. Main highlight of the anniversary celebration was a ‘Grab the Gold Key, it’s not a Trick’ event, where the museum generously gave away 10 pure 999 gold bars as prizes. Each winner brought home a pure gold bar simply by finding the right key to successfully unlock the cage of the Giant Baby sculpture. Other fringe activities included free distribution of limited edition eco tote bags designed by Trick Eye Museum and a Do-It-Yourself booth was set up for all to personalize their tote bags with stamps.
Trick Eye Museum Singapore has received tremendous support and achievements in the past year, having been featured in several travel shows, drama and variety show productions across the region. Trick Eye Museum was barely 6 months old in Singapore when the tourist attraction became one of the top 10 most visited and checked-in local attractions alongside established giants such as Universal Studios Singapore, Resorts World Sentosa and Gardens by the Bay.
Following Trick Eye Museum’s entrance to Singapore, the museum further expanded its foreign venture to other parts of the world. The second foreign branch was opened in Jinan, China on 20 December 2014 and the latest addition to the foreign venture is Trick Eye Museum at Hong Kong which opened on 23 December 2014. Trick Eye Museum will also be expanding to other parts of China, India and the United States in 2016.
It has been an exciting year for Trick Eye Museum. Supporters can look forward to promotions and activities following Trick Eye Museum Singapore’s renewal towards the end of the year.
