Trick Eye Museum
The museum offers countless opportunities to take creative photos. Find your way through an enchanted forest in the Secret Garden; pop up in works of art in the World of Masterpieces; pose triumphantly in the Great Adventure; explore your imagination in Neverland; then get close to replica landmarks in Hong Kong Discovery. Combine with a visit to the Galleria observation deck, which offers sweeping views, or head to the Peak Tower for more attractions.
Things to Know Before You Go
Don’t forget your camera—photography is actively encouraged.
The interactive museum is ideal for families with kids.
The museum is mostly wheelchair-friendly, though some of the visual exhibits are not.
How to Get There
The museum is easily reached by the Peak Tram. Alternatively, bus No. 15 from Exchange Square takes just over half an hour, and Green Minibus no. 1 from MTR Hong Kong Station takes around 15 minutes. The Peak Galleria has paid parking.
When to Get There
The Peak is busiest after midday, so avoid the crowds by coming in the morning. Alternatively, arrive at the museum in the late afternoon, then head to the viewing platform to capture striking snaps of the city by sunset.
Peak Tram Optical Illusion
The Trick Eye Museum isn’t the only spot for optical deception. If you travel to the Peak by tram, be on the lookout for a strange optical illusion that makes the highrise buildings look like they’re falling toward the mountain. Caused by the reclined body position and tilted perspective of tram riders, the trick can be quite surprising.
