Let me do the work for you because I have been to both recently! And if you have too as well, let us see if you share the same sentiments as me, alright? 🙂

My verdict :

TRICK EYE MUSEUM!!!

You guys have to know that the numerical figures you see under its area size is misleading because Trick Eye is SO MUCH MORE SPACIOUS than Alive which easily wins my heart over. I was so annoyed at Alive due to the lack of space! IMHO, Alive may want to restructure their exhibits and make full-use of their bigger space if possible.

Tips while at the the Museums :

  • Ladies are advised to wear pants/leggings as there are mirrored walls and floors, and most importantly you will be required to pose at different positions and angles
  • Refer to the signages on the walls which would have sample poses of that exhibit. Of course, you are welcomed to let your creativity juices flow too!
  • Keep an eye on your belongings and we found that we could easily place our belongings within our sight at Trick Eye due to the larger space
