People go to Hongdae to do shopping, attend wild parties, and watch street performances. It is indeed one of the busiest places in Seoul. If your accommodation is near Hongdae you should also visit Trick Eye Museum!
Few months ago, I and my sister visited Miracle in Art Museum (at The District Cavite) and Art in Island Interactive Museum (at Quezon City) in Philippines. We really enjoy taking pictures in those museums with optical illusions. I think those places are really interesting especially for kids.
My 8 year old sister came to Korea last week and I got so excited to make an itinerary suitable for her. I decided to bring her in Trick Eye Museum on her first day.
5 reasons why you should visit Trick Eye Museum
1. The exhibits are touchable.
2. You can experience winter any time of the year.
3. There’s a sensual art exhibit called love museum.
4. You can drink a coffee with your face on it!
5. It’s the first and only AR Museum in the world.

I highly recommend this for tourists who are traveling with kids. Well, I must say that it’s not only for kids, but also teenagers, adults, and oldies can surely enjoy taking pictures inside the museum.
The staff are nice. They are very approachable. They can also speak English so it’s really foreigner friendly.
Even though it’s in a basement, you won’t have a hard time looking for it. They also have a big exhibit outside the place where you can take pictures.

Adults – 18,000 won (+8,000 won if you’re going to Love Museum)
