Alive Museum Review

  On Monday, my mother and I visited the Alive Museum. It is an optical illusion wonderland located within Suntec Tower 4 on the third storey, right above Toys 'r' us. It opens from 10am to 10pm, and is very accessible via Promenade MRT. You just need to take Exit C to enter Suntec City, and you'll be able to find it easily. Admission for adults (children 13 years old and above) is $25, while a ticket for a child (3 to 12 years of age) is $20.

  I won't show all the exhibits, because otherwise it'd spoil the fun for you if you decide to go. As we went to visit it on a weekday, there weren't many people there so we could take the time to visit each exhibit area and take as many pictures as we wanted. The staffs within the museum were very friendly and we were asked thrice whether we would like help to have our picture taken together. ^-^

  When we first entered, we were greeted by a creepy Van Gogh, whose eyes followed us across the room...

  Splendid start to our visit! We also got to be mermaids, and then we met a dragon.

  There was this fully mirrored room that had a sign outside that told ladies that were wearing skirts to be careful of accidentally flashing their butts to others. I didn't quite believe the sign as I had seen mirrored floors before, and as there were very few people in the museum, I could try to sway my skirt about to see whether what the sign said was true. .... It was. >///<   So be careful if you decide to wear a skirt or dress to the Alive Museum!
There was jive music playing in the room, with colourful flashing lights.
And it was fun to take mirror selfies whilst in the room.

  You were supposed to lean forward with the help of this red handle thingy, but I couldn't do it. So I got creative!
You can't see the red handle cause my body is blocking it, but you can see the shoe prints on the floor where people are actually meant to stand.

*frowns*
What are you staring at?

Baby Van Gogh and I had a drawing competition. (He won.)
There actually was a baby Picasso on the wall, but like I said; be creative with the exhibits!

  Then there was this awesome floor illusion:

  Not to worry if you have vertigo (just like my mother does), though. The alley past this leads to a dead-end, and you have to go past a door to continue through the museum. (My mother was extremely relieved that she didn't have to brave walking across the scary glass floor. hahaha)

I wasn't actually supposed to sit here to take a picture. The exhibit was on the opposite side of the room, but I'm not going to spoil it for you.

This one was one of my favourite exhibits.

This one gave me very "The Little Prince" vibes, for some reason.

Here's a picture of my mum petting a giraffe.

  And one last one:

  My mum and I had lots of fun taking pictures and thinking up of creative ways to pose with the exhibits. I'm sure the Alive Museum would be great fun for the entire family. The museum does not have many activities. It is mostly just a way for you to have a fun day out and have unique photos to take home. So make sure to go as a couple, or a trio or more in order to be able to have more photo opportunities.
