Fun Day at Trick Eye Museum, Seoul

When you are in Seoul, South Korea, don’t miss out the fun Trick Eye Museum which is an idea outing especially for family with kids!

The museum t is the world’s first AR (Augmented Reality) museum where paintings come alive! With the latest TRICKEYE app on your smartphone and the use of augmented reality technology, the artworks become more realistic than ever, such as the dragon in the painting will come alive spitting ball of fire when you use the app to take photo or video – pretty cool! Unfortunately, we only knew about the app when we purchased the tickets at the museum and the app took a long time to download….so, we gave it a miss but still had fun in exploring the museum!

Tips

  • Download the TRICKEYE app from itune in advance as the free wifi at the museum is very slow!
  • Using the app can exhaust your phone battery, so make sure you have a power bank with you!
  • Purchase your tickets in advance via the klook website at a discount. Note that it is a fixed date ticket.

In addition to the Trick Eye Museum, the ticket also comes with the entry for the Ice Museum which is located inside the Trickeye Museum. The Ice Museum is bloody cold (-2 degree celsius!). It is filled with objects that are fully made out of ice, such as iced TV and couch, iced toilet, iced slide etc. Come prepared with a coat as it is really very cold in there after few minutes!
