Trick Eye Museum

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.

Everything in this museum is touchable! You’ll never see a “Do not touch” sign.

2. You can experience winter any time of the year.

My sister endured the coldness to see the ice hotel. It was cold but she really enjoyed it.

3. There’s a sensual art exhibit called love museum.


Satisfy your fantasies with life size exhibits. We skipped it because kids aren’t allowed inside. Don’t worry, I’ll make sure to go back there and write a separate blog about it.

4. You can drink a coffee with your face on it!

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.
