Trick Eye Museum and other quirky places
Last year, when we went to Seoul for the first time… we really planned to visit either the Trick Eye Museum or the Alive Museum. We actually printed out discount coupons already but sometimes plans don’t push through due to some circumstances. In our return trip to Seoul, we finally made the decision to go to Trick Eye Museum and visit not just one museum but all four museums in Hongdae!
First we visited their main museum where you can interact with the artworks that gives an illusion of being in 3D! Then we checked out the Carnival Street where you can play games just like in a normal carnival! Next one is Love Museum but kids, this is for Adults only! I have lots of crazy poses in that museum that I think is too erotic! Haha! We went to the Ice Museum last so we can don our jackets and go straight outside after (winter time in Korea).
Ok, enough talk. Let’s see some pictures! I’ll include some of the ‘best’ ones here but of course, nothing beats something you experienced personally. So yup, I suggest you visit them!

They also have an interactive 4D concept called Art Fighter! As an avid gamer of Fight video games back in the days, I truly enjoyed this one! You would be projected to the screen and fight a big nasty challenger on the way! I felt like I was Ryu of Street Fighter! Hadouken! Haha!

A kid who’s watching me fight was laughing his ass off on my antics haha! Fun-tastic!
Carnival street is where you can play games where some are free but others requires you to purchase a token to play. You can play balloon darts, basketball shoot out, Air Hockey to name a few and other digital games. Here are some pictures:
I’ll show you the Ice Museum first as I want to make the Love Museum as my finale haha!
Okay, as if the weather in Korea’s not cold enough, we braved the Ice Museum, which, as far as I recall is kept at around -10C°! Since we visited Seoul in the Holiday season of December, the Ice Museum’s theme is Winter Wonderland Christmas! I remember in the Philippines we have something similar and the staffs are actually handing out jackets to keep you warm. But I guess here in Korea, they assume you have a jacket with you since it’s so cold outside too!
Now for the finale, the Love Museum!
The moment I stepped on the museum, I told myself ‘This is going to be epic’. With a devilish smile in my face, I posed for some of the funniest pics I ever had in my life. I’m sharing just some of it here because I think others are too erotic haha! Please don’t judge me. I’m just a simple man, I see… uhmm, never mind 😀
Trust me guys, you’ll enjoy it here! You have to experience it yourself to fully appreciate it 😀
