This is hard. I decided to choose just 10 photos to share with you. Just to give a glimpse on the 3d art experience at Art in Island without really spoiling all the fun and amazement for you.
Ang saya! I didn’t expect it to be fun. I’ve been to a few 3D art museums before so I thought, Art in Island will just be one of those but no! All the crawling, posing, running around could have contributed to the endorphin rush. It’s so fun to be a kid once again! I’ve been to 3D Art Museums, too, in Boracay, La Union, and Hongkong but this one in Cubao is huge! It’s the largest in Asia and is very accessible, too, since it’s just in Manila.

ART IN ISLAND EXPERIENCE
Good for solo travellers. Staff of Art in Island prioritize assisting the solo goers since there’s no way you can maximize the 3D effects if you will take the pictures alone. Tripods are not allowed. There are sample photos on the wall near the 3D art installations so you would have ideas on how to pose. There are markers called “photo points”, too, where the photographer is suggested to shoot to maximize the 3d effect. Of course, everything else is left to the creativity of museum-goers.
Also, I’m biased but this museum obviously is Catholic. The lights and sound show using projection mapping and media facade art is perfect for this season of Lent. The show runs every 2 hours (please see schedule below). The staff will gather the museum goers at the central hall 5 minutes before the show so you’ll most probably won’t miss it. They also have a new attraction, a light show, called “Hiwaga” for an additional entrance fee of Php200 per person.
You’ve got to xperience Art in Island firsthand! It’s a lot different when the photos just come from your newsfeed.
