Have you been to Art in Paradise and want some new, creative photos? Then why not try the Magic Art Museum located centrally at MBK. We feel this trick eye museum is maybe not as large as its older counterpart but it has the added attraction of a ball park, funnier cartoon style photos and props!!
The Magic Art Museum is segregated into different sections, each with its own theme. Within each room you can step into the interactive art work and engage in the surroundings.
On the floor next to the art work there are camera symbols indicating where to stand for the best photo, in addition to, useful photographs showing you what the photos should look like when taken. Getting the right pose and angle can take time and skill….
The first room you will enter is the Thailand Culture Zone. Here you will find exotic animals, tuk tuks, floating markets, lady boys and scenes from soi cowboy for your enjoyment (as we’re teachers, several of these couldn’t be posted on the internet)!
Next is the Thai Horror Zone with zombies, horror movies and plenty of goriness, body parts and blood.
If horror is not your thing you can make a quick escape into the Sport Zone. Here you will find Manchester United Footballs scenes, Thai boxing along with many other sports.
Not the sporty type? Then you will probably prefer the funny zone where you can pose at urinals and climb trees. Within the funny zone there is also a large ship containing a ball park and as far as we’re aware it has no age limit as we were allowed to enter for some fun!
Finally, all the props and costumes! From singing on stage, to cowboys and prisons, this zone is sure to entertain you for a while.
So if you’re in MBK and are feeling overwhelmed by the crowds and shopping, why not pop into the Magic Art Museum for some interesting photo opportunities.
