My first experience of 3D art was in Malaysia in i-City Shah Alam’s Trick Art Museum, I’ve got a handful of awesome pics from that fun experience, so I know it’ll be a treat to visit another 3D art museum. And this time it’s going to be in Manila. Can’t wait to check out the Art in Island in Cubao tomorrow, said to be the biggest of its kind in Asia!
I was doing some research earlier about the admission fees, operating hours, promos and discounts, do’s and don’ts, etc. and I’ve collated the info so I can share them with you who may be looking for a new fun thing to do in Manila. Or if you are in the middle of organizing a field trip, excursion, team activity you may want to consider this interactive museum in Cubao, a new attraction in the Metro.
My next Art in Island post will be a review, experience sharing and a photoblog. Hope you’ll watch out for it! 🙂
