3D Art Museum Chiang Mai Review

Last Updated 30/01/2023.

There are plenty of ” things to do in Chiang Mai” posts on the internet, even when you add the “with kids” bit to the end. I’m not going to write one, it’s been done to death and everything you need to know about Chiang Mai will be in our Living in Chiang Mai post. But this place, this crazy museum the like of which I’ve never seen before, gave us such a fun afternoon that I need to show you the photos. I’m fully embracing the #homeschoolershavemorefun hashtag for this one too. This was a monumental art lesson in the possibilities of cunning perspective. We took along a young friend, also home educated, and we five had an absolute blast at the Art in Paradise 3D Art Museum in Chiang Mai, not far from the Night Bazaar.

It’s fun for grown ups too! Chef at Chiang Mai’s 3D Art Museum, Art in Paradise.

I presume you’ve all seen those incredble 3D works of art in Facebook posts and elsewhere on the internet. The ones where, from the exact right angle, it looks as if the pavement has opened into a gaping chasm. Well this museum has that kind of incredible art, and more. It was way better than I expected, way bigger than I expected and a lot of fun for all of us, from the two ten year-olds to the fifty year old.

Grab your cameras (you’ll be needing them) and hop on a fixed rate red songtaw ( 20 Baht each) to Art in Paradise, Chiang Mai’s 3D Art Museum, the biggest of its kind in Asia.

for you, for Pinterest

Review art in Paradise 3D art museum chiang mai

It’s quite amazing how this art museum keeps you gripped and never lets your attention wander from the incredible images it keeps delivering. You could imaging it would get a bit “same same” after a while. It doesn’t because Art in Paradise takes you through a series of themed art experiences and you never know quite what is coming next.

We strolled from Ancient Egypt, to snowy mountains, to T-Rex inhabited jungles, hardly pausing for breath as the kids jut had to see what was around the next corner. Your cameras will get a lot of use, bring your best sense of humour and don’t be camera shy, the more dramatic your poses, the better the photos.

The art works are diverse, there are replications of classics along with the fun 3D scenes.

Water flows from canvases, petals drip to the floor and flowers and butterflies magically disappear and chime as you skip among them, nothing disappoints.

I don’t want to give away what’s in store too much, this is a place to experience for yourself, not through somebody else’s images, I’ll just give you a taster of what you will find.

Is Art in Paradise 3D Art Museum Chiang Mai Good for Kids?

The art really does jump off the wall.

You bet! We took along 3, age 10-12 and they raced about like over-excited puppies for 2 solid hours. There were squeals of excitement from the moment we arrived to the moment we realised, sadly, that we’d reached the end.

Is it Worth Going to Art in Paradise Chiang Mai Without Kids?

Back to Egypt, where we first met.

Yes. Anybody, even old folks like Chef and I, can appreciate how incredibly clever these art works are. It’s best to have a friend along to share the fun and take photos, but yes, this is an attraction to please all ages.

So all up, do we recommend Art in Paradise? Absolutely, particularly if your family is getting hot and temled-out in glorious Chiang Mai. It’s something different, something refreshing and something that will add an extra dimension ( see what I did ?) to your time in Thailand.
