Trickeye Museum in Seoul

A sign leading to the Trickeye Museum

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.

Me ‘spilling’ a bucket full of water. Looks very realistic, huh?

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.

Different kinds of paintings where you can ‘pretend’ to be a part of.

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.

Alice in Wonderland Tea time

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.

    Hi I’m travelling to Seoul & Jeju mid next month, just wondering Trickeye museum in Seoul & Jeju is it the same thing? But look like Jeju entrance fee cheaper

      Hi Alicia, I’ve never been to the one in Jeju yet. But it looks like there are differences with the two. Let me know which one you decide to go.
