Haunted Art Gallery Wants to Scare the Bejeezus out of You

by Hazel Chua

Art museums aren’t exactly the most exciting places to visit, especially for kids. Sure, there’s a lot of great art to be seen, but there’s not much fun to be had since all you can do is look and not touch.

Reinventing the concept of art museums though is the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo, where Torafu Architects created an interactive art gallery inside the museum that was designed specifically for kids.

It’s completely unlike most art museums in every sense. It features reproductions of some of the most well-known pieces of art with a spooky, horrific twist. Some of the paintings look like they came straight out of Harry Potter (if the series had a horror version, that is), like a portrait where its subject’s eyes keep darting back and forth.

There’s even a secret passageway that leads to the interior of the walls where these paintings are hung, where kids can touch art and manipulate what’s on the frames from the inside.

You can check out more images on Torafu’s website.
