|S.E.A Aquarium at Resorts World Sentosa, Singapore.|
For your information S.E.A Aquarium ticket also includes the Maritime Experiential Museum where one can learn the history of sea exploration and trade in Asia with life-sized replica of Admiral Zheng He's Treasure Ship. Since we were early (reached around 10.15am) during this second visit to the S.E.A Aquarium, we get to explore the area in a slow and steady pace which enable us to have more time spent in each habitat.
Sentosa is accessible with the MRT rail system from VivoCity Sation (at level 3 which is located beside the Food Republic Foodcourt), Cable Car (from mount faber), taxis, cars or you can even take a leisurely stroll from VivoCity shopping mall to the resort with minimum entrance fees.

TRICK EYE MUSEUM
Trick Eye Museum located beside Aston Specialties (on the same stretch as Malaysian Food Street). The museum is divide into 8 exhibits with different themes for visitors to explore their imagination and creativity on the photos. And from the photos below you could roughly have some ideas on how the exhibits look like before getting your tickets there.
Just to share some basic information about the museum:
- No re-entry after exit;
- No washroom facilities available
- You would need at least 60 - 90 minutes to complete all the exhibits in the museum.
- To get a good shot of the photo, look at the instruction sample on the side of the exhibit and also ensure that you are standing on the "photo shot" maker on the floor for better effect.
all within the first exhibit) show casing some really cool 3D effect ideas which you can see from the photos below.
|One of the optical mirrors illusions that creates a depth below the floor which makes it looks deep and scary.|
|[Top] Boy climb into the box to take the photo but too bad i should have appear at the window to lift the cover.|
[Bottom] A very comedy shot that makes you grow either taller or shorter depending on where you stand.
|Super love this shot with the awesome dolphin splash, but the boy looks a bit too tend up perhaps due to the crowds waiting for their turn to snap photos. (photo has being rotated for the special effect)|
|This is one of the photo that need to be rotate upside down to see the effect and it is actually taken upright and hugging the beam. (photo has being rotated for the special effect)|
|One of the cool painting which you can get a few friends to take together and create a much better effective showing a rescuing scene of someone being suck into the monster fish mouth.|
|Being caught and caged by the dinosaur.|
|Enjoy the parachute view from top! (photo has being rotated for the special effect)|
|Seems like a fairytale exhibit with snowball, angel, witch broomstick and etc.|
|Gosh! We spotted Merlion there too! Between take a closer look at the top right photo, that was another rotating upside down photo too with the boy actually pushing the wall when I took the photo on a normal angle.|
