Phuket 3D Museum

Notice: Phuket 3D Museum is temporarily closed

(or Phuket Trickeye Museum) is a great place to take your kids or your friends for a couple of hours of silly fun, especially on a rainy day. If you are not familiar with the concept of Trickeye Museum, also called the 3D museum, it’s a place where you interact with giant paintings for some fun photo sessions. A similar attraction has been hugely popular first in Pattaya, then in Chiang Mai and finally in Bangkok. The 3D Museum in Phuket Town is not related the those three listed above.

Inside Phuket Trickeye Museum

The building used to be the famous but weird Pearl Cinema and the Fantasia Entertainment club. Phuket Trickeye Museum is now a large venue displaying up to 100 different large paintings depicting all kinds of fun scenes visitors have to interact with.

Walk a rickety bridge above the clouds, ride a flying carpet, fight Mike Tyson in a TV match or escape a giant crocodile. It’s fun and silly; there is no limit to your selfie creativity. Visitors often act shy at first, but always get carried away as they discover the next scenes across the many rooms. The Trickeye Museum is a great activity with kids.

If you don’t know what you are supposed to do in front of each painting, there are photos on each wall describing what to do to maximise the effect. If you came alone, the staff would be happy to take your silly pose with your camera. Alternatively, you can bring your tripod as I did, it’s fun too.

Phuket Trickeye Museum

Overall the quality and execution of Phuket Trickeye Museum paintings are not as realistic as the one in Bangkok. On the right side, they didn’t make the mistake of varnishing the scenes so much, preventing the glossy reflection that usually spoils the effect. Visitors are required to remove their shoes not to damage the floor paintings. Be aware that some stairs are therefore quite slippery.

Born in France a long long time ago, I started to travel the world early and never stopped until I settled in Thailand in 1994. Then for the past 27 years, my passion for photography and my natural curiosity has taken me to every corner of Thailand, jumping frequently between Bangkok and Phuket and basically everywhere I could go. I run Phuket101.net and manage large international online travel guides.
