Trick Eye Museum

Any fans of the YouTube channel Eat Your Kimchi may have heard about this museum. It was through a video that Simon and Martina did that I found out about this museum. Up until yesterday, I hadn’t had a chance to go. And with a little voucher, courtesy of Visit Korea, I went with the boy and his parents.

It was fun but it was also very crowded since we went during summer vacation – and a national holiday. I’m thinking that it would have been nicer to go when it was less busy so that you’re not always standing in line for each portrait (and we ended up skipping a lot because there was so many people). Also, I get really self-conscious when there’s a huge crowd of people just looking on because they’re waiting for you to take your picture and go.

It’s a really small museum but it’s amusing and fun for an hour or so during a hot and humid day in Seoul.

A new addition in July 2013 is the Ice Museum. In a little corner of the museum, the temperature is kept at 0 degrees Celsius and there are ice sculptures inside. There were penguins, igloos, Santa Claus, a little replica of the interior of a house, and an ice slide. Considering that I was wearing a skirt and my toes were really feeling the cold, I opted out of the slide.
