  • Wouldn't call it a museum. It was more like a whirlwind photoshoot. Went with my cousin, and we were basically whisked from one photo set to the next and instructed how to pose for the photo. *Snap snap*, and on to the next set. Honestly not sure whether I liked my visit. It was certainly a different experience, with some fun pictures to show for the visit. Do I think I might have preferred to have spent my time and money wandering around the heritage area looking at the buildings, murals, and wire-art instead? Perhaps. Like I said, not entirely sure whether I liked or disliked the visit here. Look for a metaphorical fence, and you'll find me on it.
  • No idea why it’s called a ‘museum’. Very popular, often a long wait - but the ticketing system is efficient. Be prepared to be ushered through quickly and told what to do. All a bit too prescriptive for my liking, but it’s a quirky experience & kids will enjoy the photos afterwards.
  • A really fun place for both young and old. Every "stop" of the museum has a "in-house" guide stationed there to direct every guest into different poses. Every photo taken is fingerprint like unique. Go in small groups of 6pax(max) as each "stop" is quite small. Flip your devices to see the effects
  • The museum is a great place to go as a family to click some pics. But try ringing there before 10:30 am. The place opens at 8:45am. Because The waiting queue is minimum one hour long. And after you buy the ticket you have to wait in the waiting area ONLY and wait your number. Cannot go outside anywhere else.
  • Went around noon and about an hour wait. Had to remove shoes but the place was not very clean so better hoping there were no infected feet. Overall, staff were ok, but they should listen to customers when we say we just want to take a group photo and not make us pose when we don’t want to. Not cheap and they must be making a bit of money with the lines so it would be great if some investment could go into improving hygiene, maintenance and cleanliness.
