Art In Island - A "Selfie/Groufie" Interactive 3D Museum

For those under the regular school schedule that we Filipinos have been used to for the longest time, school days are just around the corner. Not all of us have the luxury of time or lots of money to throw around for major travel excursions just to close off the summer vacation.

an Art In Island staffer helped us get this shot

For those who are into Art, selfies and one afternoon of fun, I recommend heading out to Art In Island.

Phil and MAX try to hang in there instead of doing a hang ten :P

Here's Kicco wishing he were somewhere else

Located at #175 15th Ave., Brgy. Socorro, Cubao Quezon City (see map), this interactive art museum is opened from Tuesday to Sunday, 9:30 am - 9:30 pm. It' closed on Mondays, except if that Monday falls on a holiday.

Running with the bulls in Pamplona doesn't seem to be good for one's health ;-)

We checked out the place earlier this summer, around Lent, and found to our satisfaction, that this place was just awesome!

pabili po ng ticket :)

Admission Fees are as follows:
Adult - 500 php
Children - 400 php
Children below 3 feet get in for FREE

Some tips for those heading out to the museum:
a. bring socks. The art is all around - walls, ceilings and yes, even floors.
deposit/claim booth for your shoes

b. tripods are a no-no. It says so on the entrance. Spaces between photos are limited. Don't expect to get your landscape/panoramic shots with you and your companions down to a tee. There will be OTHER people in those wide shots.

the kid in purple's ours. Not sure who the kid in blue is

c. don't be a hog! Other people want to get their photo ops as well. Don't selfishly stay in one place trying to get that ONE.PERFECT.MOMENT. (to that family we ran into who kept on hogging the photo areas one after the other in the museum, you guys suck big time!)

we waited patiently for our turn to get our photos taken with these scenes

d. you don't have to bring food and drinks. There's a reasonably priced cafeteria on the 2nd floor.

a can of soda costs around 40-50 pesos

e. there is ample parking. Seriously. The parking lot is huge.

f. selling of tickets is only til 8 PM. Yup. That's all I've got on that topic.

g. look down. literally. There are small stickers on the floor that act as guides on where to stand to get the 3d effect in your photos. They kinda look like this:

told ya they were small

h. Lastly, the 2 story structure, depending on the crowd size and how many photos you plan to take, can be visited and enjoyed 3-4 hours tops. That would include merienda, and dealing with folks who hog scenes.

We seriously had fun in the biggest 3D museum in Asia (as far as painting sizes go). It was fun, letting our not-so-shy sides come out and pose for the camera.


sure, your ankles are finely turned; but your shoe tying skills are abysmal

Sealed with a cheek to cheek

I could probably get good mileage on these babies

From TMW, may all your wanderings be better than ours!
