Art in Island | 3D interactive art museum experience

Its always fun to discover somewhere the whole family will enjoy. Well, learning something is a plus but is a big factor especially when it is about our own history and culture. Let's be honest that most of "those places" are somehow boring, but what if we found a place that is totally the opposite of it all. 

We stumbled in an interactive museum where the combination of arts, lights, and sounds are showcased in a thrilling vibe where learning is nourished. Good enough? Read on..

Man, the place is gigantic! Not sure but read somewhere that this may currently be the biggest art museum in Asia.. If it's not, well, it's definitely one of the biggest then. Welcome to Art In Island in Cubao, Quezon City - Philippines.

To start the tour, shoes are not allowed inside so you need to surrender them upon entering the entrance of the designated exhibit area. They advise guests to bring jackets as to visitors may feel cold and as their part of their reminder, you can bring any kind of camera inside but using flash is prohibited.

Surrendering my shoes
Make sure to wear socks - shoes are not allowed inside the exhibit area


Prepare to be amazed as the exhibits get better as you go deeper inside the museum. It will start with some basic optical illusions like this,

It's a painting so it should not move while you go nearer to it


Real looking life-size paintings like this

And some murals that are mind-blowing like this.

By the way, I am just giving you some examples of the different features to enjoy there as they have literally hundreds of it inside.

You don't need to be an art expert to appreciate them but if you are, I am pretty sure you'll still be amazed at what they can offer here. I happened to actually caught myself smiling upon seeing some of them as they will stun you with their illusion, color mix, size & grandeur, until to the efforts behind.

And to reiterate how big the place was, there was a point in time that I was confused about where should I go next haha! Some areas got several doors and I don't want to miss any section. There was also an area where I thought it was a dead-end but it was not lol, the stairs were just sitting there near me and I just laughed myself out. It's actually a good sign as to it implies that I am excited to see everything they have there. Though be ready for some walking action as to roaming or wandering this huge of a place can be tiresome.

This is one of their newest attractions inside which is a section/show of graphic arts and lights & sounds altogether. I already saw some clips on the internet before my visit but man, getting its vibe first hand was different.

* The ticket man will stamp your hand before going inside. If you look at your hand, don't question him why your hand is still the same as if there was nothing new.. Go inside and look at your hand again. =)

Disregard the date stamp. There is a black light stamp somewhere there lol


I experienced a unique feeling that I was just imagining way back then. What was it? To see a lot of fireflies in the night with that relaxing feeling of peace. I had prior experience of it, it was way back our Palawan trip (no. 4 on the list) but this is just in its league of its own.

Imagine you are in a big dark room, with the sound of nature, cold, and what you see is this view? I was just caught up in the moment - staring at it for quite some time, enjoying everything I see and feel. I was blessed to be the only one in the whole area that moment so I cherished everything to the fullest.

This area was a revelation to me that experiencing it is way better than setting expectations or judging them immediately upon seeing just a part or glimpse of it somewhere else.

I would definitely recommend you guys to go there and experience it first-hand. Well, if this was not yet enough.. How about a video of my visit? I hope this gives you tons of more reasons why you should schedule your visit soon.  Happy watching!

  6. this is the first time I ever heard of a museum asking for visitors to take their shoes off, but I think that is a great idea! I have never been to the Philippines, mostly ventured around in Europe and the US - time to put that country onto my bucket list - blessings!

  8. This is really nice. The art works are super amazing. It wouldn't be a bad idea to visit but why would one have to take off shoes though?

    1. I guess because some of the murals are so big that they have to paint the floor also to pull off the effect.

    How ironic that I live within walking distance from this art museum but I have not been there! Ugh. My sister and her two kids have been there and they say it is just awesome. I loved their photos. I should make it a point to go there before the year ends. Again, it is just within walking distance and my only issue is making time to go there!
