Staying Alive @ Alive Museum

on March 8, 2016

Since my first visit to the Alive Museum one year back with my crazy pal, I had always wanted to do a re-visit. I could remember distinctly how much fun we had and how wacky we went over the 3D artworks, props and digital art pieces. Alas, with our hectic schedules, we never got round to doing so.

With a special invite from Alive Museum for their one year anniversary, it was my best excuse to make the re-visit. Yayhoo… You can imagine how ecstatic I was, and was literally brimming from ear to ear even before I could enter the museum.

I visited the museum with a friend (Meifang) and her niece (Donna) and nephew (Toby). This visit brought back lots of wonderful memories and at the same time, created fresh ones. With over 10,000 sq ft holding more than 80 artwork exhibits, 30 per cent of the art pieces had been changed since its inception. And as a matter of fact, the museum changes 30 per cent of their art pieces every 12 to 18 months.

“Look at this trove, Treasures untold, How many wonders can one cavern hold? Looking around here you think, Sure, she’s got everything!” Soundtrack from Part of Your World (The Little Mermaid) My little mermaid and merman is ready for ya! Are you…? 🙂

The museum has Pose point icons and Photo point icons on the ground indicating the best spots to pose and shoot from. So, don’t worry if you can’t figure out cos they even have a “Sample pic” on how it would look like. But, of course, who’s to say you can’t add a little creativity of your own!

OMG…. Look at what the kids found in the washing machine?!

Love this Digital Art piece. Donna was actually jumping on a gym mat and the mural at the back was inverted. After the jump, all we need to do was to flip the image upside down and we could see her in the inverted posture. I thought it was very cleverly done as we were standing there wondering why was the mural at the back inverted. *Scratching our heads* Haahaa… 😀

How do you like my moon-walking with MJ? Can pass?

Ever wondered how it was to look thru the eyes of ET?

With a wide range of Digital Art, 3D Art and Object Arts, visitors can look forward to a wow and immersive experience to ‘trick’ and bewilder their friends. The crux is to ‘stay alive’ whilst being chomped up by Marilyn Monroe, dangling within metres from the crocodile’s fangs and being chased by zoombies….!!

There were no signages leading to this glass chamber and it was such a thrill for us popping our heads in to find that it leads to another segment of the Museum.

Getting around the Museum is easy… You can hitch a flight

The kids certainly look like they are having a lot of fun…

And this is how much we L O V E the Alive Museum… 🙂 Tell me how could you not after visiting!

 

Tips when visiting the Alive Museum :

– For ladies, it will be best to go in pants / jeans. Yes, I know we look prettier and more photogenic in that little dress, but well, some of the art pieces require a bit of climbing, crawling, jumping or even lying on the floor. Hence, things can get a little ‘unglam’, you know…

– Visit the washroom which is just next to the Museum before you enter it. As the Museum is quite huge and there are so many of these art pieces to camwhore with, its going to take quite a while before you get out. You wouldn’t want to miss any of those art pieces, right, cos’ you may not be able to re-enter once you exit.

– Many of these art pieces need an extra pair of hands for photography. Best to go with family, friends, loved ones or even your enemy! (If he/she doesn’t mind going with you!)
