I’ve been to different museums before but this is actually my 1st time to experience a 3D Art Museum. By word of mouth and endless searching on the internet, I found this museum located in Cubao Quezon City.
ART IN ISLAND is the biggest 3D Museum in Asia as far as number of 3D paintings is concerned, and can be found in Cubao, Quezon City. The biggest in terms of area is the 3D Museum in Jeju Island in Korea at 4,100 sqm, versus the 3,800 sqm of Art in Island.
It’s a museum with visually stunning 3D artworks that you can touch, interact with, and be part of. It was founded by Yun Jae Kyoung and his Korean partners, with 14 3D artists from Korea working on all the paintings in 4 months.

I was really excited to see the whole museum. Just a friendly reminder, you need to wear socks because you will be asked to take off your shoes before entering the museum & a jacket cause it’s cold inside.
My boyfriend and I had so much fun looking at the amazing artworks. It was actually a challenge for us because we had to think and make our best pose in every painting we’ve seen.

Overall, this place is the perfect spot to take a lot of selfies or just have fun with your friends and family. You’ll be amazed on the incredible and creative artworks around the area. But it could have been improved. The entrance fee is too steep. They don’t also accept credit cards so be sure to bring cash. There is no queueing system when taking photos. They should also be more welcoming with the guests and the foods are too expensive.
If you get hungry, there’s an in-house restaurant on the 2nd floor. Food is kinda pricey 🙂
