We were staying in a hotel in the Gangnam district, of Seoul, so it was a bit a journey across town to the museum (1.5 hours by taxi - it was 20 minutes to go back, later in the evening), however it was fun. Included was the visit to the Ice Museum, which was a bit of a temperature shock (it was 26° outside, so we were in t-shirts & shorts and it was -2° inside so we were rather under-dressed), which was small but well set up.
The trick eye museum itself, was a lot of fun, for all the family (teenager to adult) and was a great way to unwind at the end of a long day, which had included a long plane flight.
Certainly worth a visit, to fill up a day or to do something not too serious, during your visit.
Make sure your phone is fully charged! Great for kids. Nice to have ice museum free but it was way too cold! It's small and they give you a thin poncho only that doesn't serve any purpose. Kids liked the fake toilet with fake poo.
Was really hard to find took a taxi and got lost. Much smaller than we anticipated however the displays were pretty cool, especially if you downloaded the Trick Eye app, unfortunately, my phone overheated and we had to turn it off so we didn't get a many pictures as we would have liked. Took about 1 hour to tour entire museum and not really worth the cost..
Had so much fun, totally a different kind of museum. Download the app to get the “trick-eye effect”. We got lost going there because the area looks totally different and a lot busier compare to what the area looks like on the internet. We eventually found it but one can ask for directions there.
At first, we had a hard time finding the place but eventually came across the sign. We came in at around 6pm and most of the shops inside the museum were already closed by the time we were finished. The museum was very fun though you really have to bring a tripod to take amazing photos. We also went to the Ice House which was very cold so better bring an extra jacket when you plan to go here. The area nearby, Hongik University has many restaurants, shopping places, and street music or performers so it's entertaining to stroll around the place.
Okay. First of all, this is not just one museum/exhibit. There is the Trickeye Museum and the Viator ticket includes admission to the Trickeye Museum, the Ice Museum and Carnival. There is also a Love Museum on the second floor with a separate admission price of what would be equivalent to about five dollars.
Overall, I had a blast. The venue is not huge BUT there is much fun to be had. Oh, and in the center of it all is a Kung Fu Panda Tea shop. Bubble Tea anyone?
