A unique & extraordinary museum, which displays various object art, interactive and media art, and trick art. Moreover, what is different and more entertaining than other art museums is that an interaction and engagement are involved.

They are currently having construction going on so I’m assuming the trick eye museum might be better at this time. However, we did enjoy ourselves and got some funny pics. We went as a small group and I wouldn’t recommend this as a solo activity...More

We went there when the place is undergoing renovation. So limited exposure. If you are choosing between trickeye and alive Museum. I will recommend trickeye museum.

This was very average. I'm sure it's fine for kids, but nothing exciting or very interesting for adults. Plus, works were being done and half of it was closed off, so not ideal.

It's fun inside, but only if you go together with someone else, or as a family or group of friends, not alone. Selfies are worthless. Solo travelers could better spend their time elsewhere.

Nestled between Jongno and Samcheongdong, this small
neighborhood offers a crash course in various aspects
of Korean culture. Rows of shops display traditional
Korean goods such as pottery and earthenware, crafts,
fans, and more, making it a popular spot for souvenir
shopping. The Ssamziegil shopping complex in
particular has become a local institution for its
unique spiral layout and the many boutique shops
