A Visit to Metro Manila’s Very Own Trick Museum: Art in Island

Interactive 3D art museums are a popular tourist attraction in some Asian countries. I visited the Trick Museum when I was in Singapore and I’ve read that there are also Trick Museums in Korea and Indonesia.

Well for those who’ve been wanting to visit one of these interactive 3D art museums, the good news is there is no need to go so far! Now there’s a 3D Art Museum right here in Metro Manila, specifically in Cubao!

Entrance fee is Php500 for adults and Php400 for students. If you come a day before, on the day or the after your birthday, you can get inside Art in Island for free – just bring your ID with date of birth. The museum is the largest one in Asia in terms of number of 3D paintings which is about 200 masterpieces. It was founded by Yun Jae Kyoung together with his other Korean partners. The paintings were also done by Korean artists.


It has been open for almost a year now – they opened last December 2014 but I’ve only gotten a chance to visit this museum recently.

There are various zones you can see in the museum. The first stop: Art of Optical Illusion




And as you inside, you’ll find the 7 different themed zones in Art in Island.

Aquatic zone



Religious zone


Christmas zone




Masterpiece zone (take photos with the famous paintings around the world)


Animal zone


Central Hall (featuring ancient time dungeons)


Fantasy zone (featuring magical and mysterious walls)


You’ll have fun taking photos inside the museum especially when you’re a big group of people! Let your imagination and creativity flow to get those awesome shots!







Some notes to remember when visiting:

  1. Flash photography is not allowed
  2. Shoes/slippers are not allowed inside (bring socks as the floor you’ll be walking on is cold)
  3. No food or drink allowed inside
