ART IN PARADISE 3D MUSEUM IS OFFBEAT AND KID FRIENDLY THING TO DO IN BANGKOK, THAILAND!

Art In Paradise three-dimensional interactive Museum in Bangkok, Thailand is great fun for kids and families. It is the first 3D Art museum of Bangkok. Also present in Pattaya and Chiang Mai, it attracts local and foreign tourists every day!

As I deposited my shoes at the ticket counter, I was curious to find out what exactly goes on behind the closed doors. The fact that people were emerging from the exit door, smiling and laughing added to the mystery. I had never visited a place like his before, so I did not have a modicum of an idea of what I should expect inside. It is the first “illusion” and three-dimensional museum in Bangkok.

I WAS CONFUSED IN THE FIRST FEW MINUTES OF ENTERING ART IN PARADISE MUSEUM, BANGKOK:

As I entered the first gallery, I was a bit confused about what response the huge paintings on the walls are supposed to invoke in me. I strolled around, trying to figure it out. It did remind me of the viral images of the street art of George Town in Malaysia where tourists pose next to the life-like paintings on the walls and later flaunt on the social media.

Street art is present in most of the big and small cities of the world but who would have thought that it will emerge as a big tourist magnet in Malaysia. Thailand is also keeping up with the neighbours and now boasts of proper 3D art museums dedicated for this particular entertainment activity.

THE 3D ART MUSEUM ALLOWS YOU TO LIVE YOUR FANTASIES:

We all have our fantasies as children. As we grow up, reality takes over and we lose the romance of imagination. The 3D art museum in Bangkok rekindles the childlike joy we have long distanced ourselves from. Did you fantasise about getting up, close and personal with dangerous wild animals? Did you ever want to fly sitting atop the mythical flying carpet? Or at least walk on a tightrope with thousands of feet of sheer drop? No, you can not do all this in the 3D art museum of Bangkok but you can pretend for sure in complete safety.

It is fun to pose next to huge posters and transport yourself to different places and time zones in a matter of few seconds. As you can see, I took a selfie with people who have never seen an electricity bulb. In real life, I will never lock horn with a bull. However, but I can do that easily in 3D art museum. And oh, I Mister Bean’ed and shamelessly interrupted an intense reading session of a girl who looked like she was few centuries old. I was a bit shy after posing against a few paintings. Though my friends Manjulika and Parnashree had a great time posing for me.  So, I decided to go behind the camera.

WHO SHOULD GO TO 3D ART MUSEUM, BANGKOK?

I was surprised to see many adults enjoying posing against the painted walls. A local couple in their late 20s didn’t leave the wildlife section for more than half an hour. So immersed they were in posing and getting clicked that it made me wonder why only kids should go here. Ideally, this 3D art museum is a fun place for young couples, families, kids and who knows even senior citizens might not want to leave once they get a hang of it!

HOW TO NAVIGATE 3D ART MUSEUM, BANGKOK?

The navigation is pretty easy. One room (section) leads to another. You need to climb a few stairs to head to the 1st floor. The art museum is built on 2 floors. It is divided into sections based upon themes like wildlife, period, country, famous personalities etc. It has 6 permanent exhibition zones.

15 professional artists painted the museum from scratch. The artists took around 3 months to complete the project. It takes around 2 hours to enjoy the art museum.

More than 150 paintings are exhibited for your pleasure over 2,500 square meters of space.

WHAT’S GOING ON AT 3D ART MUSEUM, BANGKOK?

If you are as lost as me, you might get confused in understanding how to use the paintings to make a fun picture. For people like me (and some of you) there are instruction boards near each painting section. They have even given proper ideas of how you can pose with the paintings. I think that saves time and you must go through them instead of wasting time figuring it out!  However, the English instructions are not always perfect but can still be understood.  I failed at one section where I could have posed upside down in a room. Let’s see if you can figure it out during your visit?

  1. ‘Kid friendly’ and ‘Bangkok’ are not really words one would often come across in the same sentence. Thanks for pointing out that Bangkok has so much more to offer than what one usually comes across. I really liked the concept of the 3D museum as well, and will certainly visit when I get to Bangkok.

  2. When I first started reading this I thought it would not be for me as I am not really into art. I prefer to be doing something adventurous rather than walking round museums usually. That said, I would do this as I love the idea that you can become part of the art. Super cool

  3. So cool! I’ve been to Bangkok and Chiang Mai before and had never heard of this somehow. I definitely agree with you that a lot of these photos reminded me of the street art in George Town, Penang. I’ll have to check this out next time I’m back in Thailand!

  4. These trick art museums are always interesting to chill out especially when struck with bad weather. Looks like you guys had a great time exploring the 3D museum – I was so shocked to see your friend standing on that bridge at first!!

  5. I always love to visit 3D art, as it is a world of imagination and fantasy. There are many ways in which we can interpret 3D art. I love to take fun pictures and create my own story with 3D art paintings. I would love to visit this 3D art museum when ever visit to Bangkok.

  6. This museum looks incredible! I don’t think i’d be able to stop taking photos with the art – and you’re right, it’d be perfect for families with young children! I don’t have any myself but just from reading your post and seeing your pictures I just know my 10 year old nephew would be in his element here!

  7. Pretty amusing place! I’ve never been to a 3D museum although I’ve heard so much about it. I think it’s true what you say – it’s a great place to live your childhood fantasies such as the illusion of riding a magic carpet. I think I would totally spend so much time just snapping photos, it’d be just so much fun to explore the many paintings here.

  8. The 3D Museums are a big hit in South East Asia. My first experience was in Thailand itself. It’s a great place if you go with friends or families. The artworks really stand out and you can have great fun engaging with them. You yourself look like a part of those artworks.

  9. It is a different yet a cool thing to do in Bangkok unlike the usual parties and beaches. Bangkok is already in my 2018 travel list. Definitely gonna visit this place. Thank you for sharing.
