    As others say, it's an amazing place to get some posed group shots. They will probably come out frame-able. However I think the photos of various groups probably all come out similarly as the rooms are tiny and they are only a few angles to shoot from. They hurry you to pose and shoot, then move on to the next room so the group after you can shoot. Not much time to enjoy and think about the cool but confusing optical illusions. Sometimes not even time to look at our shots on the camera, which is sad, as we would like to confirm whether it is nice and see how else we want to pose. My young kids were so excited they wanted to go back to the rooms and do more shots. They did go backwards a bit and thankfully the many young photographer staff were somewhat understanding. Thank you!

    Quite a fun place, you have to wait to go in when it's busy but it's worth it. Kids will love this place. Well worth a visit, good photo op.

    It is funny place, very entertaining but when is busy the staff hurry you up to move to the next room so you can not pay attention took to the details.

    We both had a lot of fun in the upside down museum. The only downside is, that its more like a place where you shoot pictures then a museum. You dont really have time to watch the rooms itsself because you are put from one room to another. Still great for a lot of laughs and your photo album!

    Near to Komtar Tower & by early morning, a little bit free. The charge RM 27 per adult, child is little bit less. They helped everyone for taking good picture. Enjoyed it.
