Ideal for families and couples, the Hong Kong 3D Museum is located in the Tsim Sha Tsui area of Kowloon. With a mission to promote local Hong Kong culture, it gives visitors a chance to explore various themes while interacting with the 3D paintings on display. The concept of a 3D museum (also known as a ‘trick eye museum’) is that visitors get up close to the art installations, interacting with them, and becoming a part of the story.
The Hong Kong 3D Museum features pieces on modern and ancient Hong Kong. For example, there’s an exhibit of the Tsing Ma Bridge and the old airport in Kowloon City, while other zones reflect more traditional Chinese culture, representing ancient customs, festivals, and architecture. There’s also a section based on western fairytales, which features Sanrio characters representing classic characters from stories such as Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz, and Gulliver's Travels.
Elsewhere, the 3D Experience Zone lets you experience a variety of simulations, including an imitation starry night sky, plus optical illusions such as the infinity tunnel and the mirror maze.
Those looking to visit Hong Kong’s top attractions can save money and skip the lines with a Hong Kong and Macau attractions pass, which lasts for five days, with entry into the Hong Kong 3D Museum included.
