Before our trip to Japan I had never heard of a Trick Art Museum. It was such an interesting and fun place to visit that I decided to devote one post to it. After we toured around Japan for two weeks, we wanted to dedicate one day to our 4 year old daughter, who had behaved so well during this trip and made us proud parents. First we thought we would visit Disneyland Tokyo for sure, but after being on the road we decided that something less hectic would be nice. So we headed to the island of Odaiba to visit both the Trick Art Museum and Legoland.
Odaiba itself would be an interesting place to visit already. This island was originally built for defense purposes, but it is now full of entertainment like malls and amusement parks. One can get to Odaiba by taking a local train, and the Trick Art Museum is located inside the Tokyo Beach Island Mall. There are also many stores and restaurants in the same building.
The idea in this museum is that the visitors will participate in the art and create illusions. A staff member showed us what we should do and how to create them, and then we headed out on our tour. Next to every painting they also have some instructions on how to take a photo in order to make the illusion work. We did not manage to catch it every time but it sure was fun to try.
Our pictures can speak for themselves:
We had plenty of other pictures as well but I think these are the best ones. We had so much fun, I can highly recommend visiting the Trick Art Museum!
