Trick Eye Museum Sentosa Singapore Reviews
Absolutely loved our visit, so many fun shots to experiment with and indulge your creative side! However, it is easy to see why a crowded museum with small children running wild would make the experience less appealing. We were lucky, visiting after 5 p.m. by chance and had a blast, Although popular in locations in the East, these types of venues are rare in Europe so we were thoroughly impressed. Give it a try!
