Nasu TrickArt Museum is one of Japan’s biggest 3D museums!
TrickArt gives you an illusional experience as the two-dimensional pictures use an optical illusion to make them look three-dimensional or give us completely different impressions when looking at them from different angles.
3D art and TrickArt works have become very popular in all over the world. The boom was led by a Japanese born “TrickArt”, which was born in Nasu TrickArt Museum, the largest 3D museum in Japan.
