A "trick art" 3D museum is coming to Dubai

Optical illusions and more than 155 pieces to explore


Dubai is getting a new attraction and we couldn’t be more excited.

3D World Dubai is set to its open doors in September and will be the largest “trick art” museum in the world and spread over a 23,000 square feet space.

As of now, there are already more than 155 pieces of art, all of which have been hand-painted using water-based paints.

The interactive art museum will feature nine different zones which include an Animal Kingdom Zone, an Egyptian Zone, a Fantasy Zone and a Water World Zone.

You can immerse yourself in to all of the zones and even become part of the art – much of which has been inspired by Dubai.

Fancy setting sail on a traditional abra? How about having a lightsaber battle with Yoda? Think you could take on Popeye in an arm wrestling competition? What about a deep sea treasure hunt?

You can head to this one-stop shop and do it all.

The brains behind the “passion project” are a husband and wife duo who first became inspired to open such an attraction after visiting a similar concept seven years ago on a family trip to Phuket – they’ve since travelled the world exploring other optical illusion museums and artwork.
