The Trick Eye Museum in Hongdae is always crowded with tourists with it’s interesting exhibits that trick you. It’s the perfect opportunity to take a gazillion pictures of yourself acting like a fool. This year, the trick eye museum extended it’s services and added an Ice Museum.
The ice museum doesn’t really have anything to do with the Trick Eye Museum, but if you go there you can get free admission with your ticket to the normal museum. You definitely have to bundle up because it really is cold in there! I actually put my coat in a locker because I went through the Trick Eye Museum first so I went in without it so I wouldn’t have to carry all of my stuff with me again.
The ice museum is pretty small and you can finish it within fifteen minutes. It’s mostly a lot of sculptures you can look at but there are a few that you can get into like the ice car and ice sleigh. It’s not really picture friendly because the lighting is very low! There was an ice house where you could sit on a couch made of ice and there was even some fake poop in an ice toilet. Totally Korean style, haha.
The best part was going down the ice slide. They give you a little seat to slide on. I don’t care if everyone was judging me, I went down the slide like twenty times. It was so fun! It wasn’t that crowded when I went there, but my friend went another day and she said she could barely move through because it was so crowded! The good thing is that no one can stay there very long because it’s cold. 🙂
