  • I feel it's not really that good for the price. Quite a few art pieces have no illustrations and also two of the pieces were not working (the windmill and the trishaw). Doesn't seem really maintained. The lighting of the art is also not as good as when it first opened and there is a lot of glare on the walls. I would rate it 3 stars on weekdays and 2 stars on weekend probably because I can forsee the narrow spaces not handling crowds well.
  • Went to the museum few days ago. the place was empty at that time (weekday 5pm+). We could take our time to snap funny photos, but the place looked a bit run down. That explains why there was no crowd at all. Helpers should be stationed at photo spots that were for couples so that both persons could be in the photo. Otherwise, you better prepare your own camera stand for that. The ticket price of S$25 per adult was expensive in my opinion, but luckily I got a 1-for-1 promo because of my NTUC membership. Spent only about one hour there.
  • A very funny place to have fantastic photos for the socials, I think people who didn't like are out of the funny mode, you need to have good sense of humor to enjoy it. Sad people: back off.
  • Even though it is not a huge place, there are heaps of things to see inside. Went on Sunday morning and it is quite empty. No need to queue and can move around quite easily.
  • A very unique and interesting concept, similar to the Trick Eye Museum at sentosa. Great for clicking pictures, and full of entertainment. Loved it
