Went to Alive Museum with W on our off day last week! The newly opened 10,000 square feet of 3D interactive art wow-ed us, as we snapped nearly 300 photos on our camera! W is such a poser, he can almost relate to every picture and start doing all sorts of different poses -.-
Anyways, Alive Museum was first opened in 2009 as South Korea’s first original 3D visual illusion museum; it claims to be the world’s largest chain of this concept where 2D art comes to live. It has eight branches in South Korea, three in China and one in Thailand, Vietnam and Turkey. This also includes 70 masterpieces like Trick Art, Digital Art and Object Art. Expect yourself to feel like a kid again, jumping, going on all fours, sitting in a boat or bend it like MJ!
To sum up, we spend about 1.5 hours in the museum with continuous photo taking. It was pretty common to have similar poses as everyone else in the museum, but I think the joy of it will be fun taking the photos and laughing away. It will be a great place if you love taking photos, like I do.
I will recommend;
- To go during off peak days/hours, like Tuesday 2-5pm, so that you wouldn’t get “photo-bomb” here and there while you are posing with those 3D art work.
- Go with a small group of 2-4, otherwise it will be really difficult to coordinate the photo taking together.
- Be sure to go to the toilet before you enter the museum as the ticket only allows one time entry and there is no toilet located within the museum.
- Stand at the right photo point and angle to achieve the most realistic looking photos
- Bring your own camera! As the harsh lighting in the museum does not portray the idealistic photo ambience and would not turn out well on phones-cameras.
- For girls, do not wear a skirt as it will be really inconvenient for photo-taking whilst lying down on the floor or jumping on the trampoline.
Till the next! ♥
