A renovation in August 2019 means that the whole gallery has 80 new hand-painted 3D art installations and walls, all under the theme of ‘fantasy’.

They both race around the gallery in high excitement, making silly poses in front of their favourite 3D murals and then taking photos of each other using my old iPhone.

Each wall in the 3D Museum produces a fun 3D effect when a photo is taken from a designated ‘photo spot’ and by positioning your smartphone to portrait or landscape mode.
