A new interactive attraction in the capital’s Stung Meanchey commune is drawing young crowds with its mind-bending paintings.
The 3D Arts World Museum contains a hundred works – painted on the walls and floor – designed to create playful optical illusions when a visitor steps inside.
The museum is the first of its kind in Cambodia, according to its owner, Kim Jung Yeong. Similar museums have had success in neighbouring Vietnam and Thailand, and originated in Kim’s native Korea.
Kim hopes the museum will inspire creativity in the Kingdom. “Our business is really simple – 3D trick arts – but I hope that all visitors can find something educational inside,” he said.
The 3D Arts World Museum is located on the third floor of the New Stung Meanchey Market and is open every day from 10am to 9pm. Tel: 092 473 030 / 086 693 030.
