Why Trick Art Museum is special ?
The Trick Art Museum is the first museum in Korea to show optical illusion art, and is located in Seogwipo City nearby the Seongeup Folk Village. Exhibitions on walls and floors are rendered in three dimensions. Exhibitions consist of seven themed sections: Parody Zone (showing famous paintings and sculptures), Animal Zone, Jurassic Zone, Aquarium Zone, Egypt Zone, Magic Zone, and Illusion Zone. Trick art renders two dimensional paintings in three dimensions by creating illusion. Each work looks differently when seen from different angles or spots. Its magic magnifies when seen from camera lenses. Visitors can take pictures with various fun poses blending nicely with exhibitions. Cameras as well as video equipment are permitted in the museum.

“Must use your imagination” 5 of 5 starsReviewed May 26, 2015 There are 6 zones. On entering, one arrives at Masterpiece artwork parody zone.. From the recreations of 50 western art masterpieces, you can use your imagination to direct and take pictures . Next is aquarium zone where optical illusion makes sea creatures such as sharks and whales seem to come out from frames. After this proceed to Egypt adventure zone. Ancient Egyptian civilization moves alive in front of your eyes.I felt a bit spooky. Animal lovers would love animal zone where you can feed giraffe and touch lions. Then go back to the past at dinosaur adventure zone and meet carnivorous and herbivorous gigantic dinosaurs. You can touch and be at ease with them. Experience magic at yhe last zone- optical illusion zone. Made yourself become a giant. Have fun and enjoy, bring home happy memories from Jeju Island.
Cool up to date art! In my opinion, better than Hongdaes. There is also the Ice Museum and a 5D thingy thats all inclusive.
