The Trickeye Museum is located in Hongdae at the basement floor of Homi Atelier (this building is a famous art supply store). The museum, more like an fun-modern art gallery features 3D like paintings which you can pose next to and feel like you’re part of the artwork.
This museum is definitely a place to go with friends and family (not really recommended when your by yourself). A couple of my good friends have been to this museum and I was quite intrigued with their photos when I saw it on Facebook, so I decided to go to this museum and check it out.
It takes about a good 2 hours to see the entire museum and take photos, also they have lockers you can use to store your bags, coats, etc. before entering the museum. I must admit that after a while, I became very selective on which paintings to take photos of since there were so many artworks.
There are three other Trickeye museums in South Korea – Seoul, Busan and Jeju. I think the best time to visit the museum is during the weekday since it gets quite packed during the weekends.
