Trickeye Museum, Seoul

Examine optical illusions and paintings in a conceptual exhibit space at Trickeye Museum. Opened in 2010, the modern museum houses works of art created using trompe l'oeil techniques, which transform 2D paintings into a multidimensional experience. Also, visit the part of the museum that displays sculptures, cartoon characters, and slides made of ice.

  • It is the second time I visit it. The first was in 2013. I had fun anyway because it wasn't the same. They now have an application where photos are in 3D and there is a sector of ice sculptures. It is advisable to go in family, couple or friends, for all ages. At the end of the Museum, there are games with 4 d glasses which can be enjoyed with a pay extra. The entrance to the Museum (including the Museum of ice) costs 15. 000won; an approximate 14 dollars.

  • This is a great place to take pictures with friends and family! Lots of fun and interesting photo opportunities to use on your social media apps. This is my second time visiting and it's a lot less crowded in the winter and during the week. The last time I visited was during the summer and there were more people. I also recommend downloading the trick eye app! It provides more effects for your photo or video.
  • Very fun! Most shots are ok for just 2 people but there were a couple where I needed someone else in the shot and another person to take the picture. Not a good place to visit if you're alone unless you have a tripod. A few inappropriate images for children (mostly just nudity, little boys peeing, exposed breasts, etc). Ice museum was fun too. Just a small room with cute ice furniture and a slide that brings you back to the entrance (use the mats provided.. I didn't realize until I got to the bottom!) verrrryyy cold, and I'm from one of the cold northern states in the US so I'm used to it but still very very cold! I had to get out of there after a bit!
  • I'd r commend this place higher if it we're less crowded. There are many great trick eye spots for cameras. However, many of the photo point markers are either wore out or gone entirely making some shots more difficult. Other than that, it felt too crowded and many people were rude and walking right through shots. Also, some rooms weren't laid out well, there would be several photos opportunities but standing at photo point for one would block another shot.
  • This is a fun experience to do with friends. Definitely go early so you're not waiting in line to take pictures and you can take crazier pics. It's literally a series of photo-ops but it's fun to do something silly. This is great for families and kids.
  • The museum was pretty fun. Only gripe I have about it was the cost compared to everything else in Korea. It's 18000 krw for entrance into the trick eye and ice museum. There's a love museum upstairs with separate entry fees. The museum was very tiny and supposedly updates their exhibits regularly. There's an app that creates an alternate reality when viewed through, but it's super glitchy. Use the app then delete it after you're done. The ice museum is very cold but small. Slide down the ice slide after you walk to the end of the museum. Don't forget to grab a poncho and seat pad on the way in!

Where to stay in Seoul

The Seoul metropolitan area has two districts especially appealing to backpackers--Jongno just northeast of the city, and Hongdae to the west. Both offer good shopping and dining, as well as easy transport links to the rest of the city. Mid-range options may prove difficult to find in peak season (July to August), unless you don't mind staying at a traditional hanok guesthouse, where loads of character make up for any lack of amenities. Finally, a range of top-end hotels with an impressive list of services and facilities lie scattered around the city.
