Trick Eye Museum (트릭아이미술관)

Sunday, 28 February 2016

When finally went to Hongdae (홍대), the first place we visited was the Trick Eye Museum (트릭아이미술관), an art gallery with 2D paintings that give a 3D illusion. Tickets cost 15,000 won per person, but we used a coupon (no longer available because the offer ended on 31 December 2015) to get a 20% discount. The ticket includes entry into the Trick Eye Museum, Ice Museum and Carnival Street.

Our first stop was the Trick Eye Museum. What you do there is quite self-explanatory, but there are some very helpful guides next to the painting that tell you how to pose and where you should stand to take the best photo. I really enjoyed the museum, and I think my sisters did to because it's so different to the other museums where you merely observe the artifacts. The Trick Eye Museum is an interactive museum where you can touch the displays and take as many photos as you like (just no flash photography).

We walked through the Trick Eye Museum faster than I had imagined, so our next stop was the Carnival Street, where you get to play some of the most popular carnival games. (Though some of them were free!)

It was my second time going to a Ice Museum (my first time was in Beijing back in 2004), and I found the Hello Kitty and eskimos to be really cute. The temperature was -9 degrees so we didn't stay for too long and left in about 10 minutes. (The weather was already freezing outside, so I didn't want to freeze myself inside as well.)

Conveniently located near Hongdae Station, the Trick Eye Museum is a really great attraction. It's fun, quirky and will keep you busy and entertained for at least 2 hours of your day. They even have branches in Busan, Jeju Island, Hong Kong and Singapore.
