Art in Paradise is a trick art museum and bills itself as the largest trick art museum in the world.  The museum is very similar to the trick art museum in Korea,  the trick art museum at Odaiba in the Decks Tokyo Beach , the trick art museum in Takao and the museum at Nikko.  I guess someday every city will have a trick art museum!  Art in Paradise includes trick art in the following categories: Aqua, Zoo, Classic Art, Ayutthaya, Egyptian, Thai, Surrealism and Dinosaur.

The museum is located at: 78/34 Moo 9, Pattaya, 2nd Road, Nonprue, Bang Lamung, Chonburi, Thailand 20150.  The museum’s telephone number is 038-424-500.  No one was answering the phone when I went and I could not have the people at the museum give directions to my driver.  The place is relatively new and the taxi and scooter drivers have no idea where the place is located.  The local drivers do know where Alcazar is and the museum is more or less in that neighborhood.  The museum is more or less across the street from Tiffany’s.  From 2nd road which is one of the main roads in Pattaya, you can see the Museum about two blocks down Moo 9 which intersects 2nd Road.  If you hit Nakula Road then you have gone too far.  Actually finding the place was not easy and below is a map in Thai that I suggest you print out and give to your driver before going to the museum.

I am a farang working in Thailand and paid 300 baht when I showed my university ID.  There are reports that farang pay a higher price than Thais but I think I ended up paying the Thai price.  Keep in mind I was also dressed as Santa.  After playing Santa for 14 years in Asia, I can tell you that Santa does get preferential treatment!
