Deemed as the world’s second largest 3D Art Museum, the Langkawi Art in Paradise 3D Museum is a must-visit site. The title comes as no surprise to the many travellers who make their way to the museum for its life-like paintings that are simply marvellous! Soaring in the fame of its largest 3D museum, Malaysia allows one to observe more than just ordinary artwork. The structures presented here draw blurry lines between appearance and reality, captivating the attention of each visitor.
Sitting on a commercialized stretch of land amidst all its forestry, the Museum gives visitors a reason to explore the area’s lush green landscapes. A trip around the Teluk Datai area opens out to much more celebrated places like the Teluk Datai Beach which is home to many a resort Langkawi has to offer such as The Datai Langkawi. Other points of interest include the oldest formation of land in South Asia and the area’s most famed waterfall.
The artwork featured at the museum employs optical illusions; a method which deceives the brain into thinking it sees something when in reality it might not be there. While some visitors call it magical, others consider it as a very impressive collection of art. There are a massive 200 pieces of art at the museum which is open to public and incorporates the collective effort of 23 talented artists. Another interesting point is that the museum also allows one to interact with many pieces of art. A total of 105 from the 200 pieces are interactive and attract a massive 500 visitors on a daily basis.
The museum is open daily from 9 am to 6 pm. Tickets are priced at RM 38 per adult for foreign visitors and RM 30 per adult for local visitors. Tickets for children too are available and are slightly less in price. The museum also hosts a café where you can drop-in for a casual snack and even a gift shop to get yourself a memento to take back with you.
