Trick Eye uses an art technique called Trompe-l’oeil (Trick of the eye). It turns two-dimensional paintings into three-dimensional images through the use of optical illusions, in other words, 2D paintings on the museum walls, floors and ceilings appear to step out of the surface and come to life. Visitors are more than welcome to explore various themed galleries with their eyes, hands and cameras. Step inside the paintings to complete their visual narratives with your creative poses and watch a “tricky” story unfold before your camera. At Trick Eye Museum, you can learn about art and culture and make fun at the same time, and have unforgettable memories with your family, friends and loved ones.
