Jeju - Alive Museum (Trickeye Museum)

From Teddy Bear Museum, it is just 5 to 10 minutes walk to Alive Museum. There is a sign to the entrance of the museum so you won't miss it.

This museum of optical illusions has five themes, including trick art, digital art, object art, sculpture art, and provence art. You can become the main character of each theme, and take pictures of themselves inside the artwork.

When you exit the museum, there is a cafe where you can relax before moving off to your next destination. I recommend trying the churros, which is ₩3,000.

Outside the restaurant, there is another large area of structures and figures. Too bad it was drizzling when we went out. Couldn't take much photos of it.

We were about to leave the museum when we found another indoor area of life-sized teddy bears.

I’d been to the Trick Eye Museum in Hongdae (post) and was amazed by it. I strongly recommend to go to any of the museums in Korea! There are two in JejuJeju’s museum is much larger than Seoul. The paintings in the museum are awesome and we had lots of fun taking photos there! We spent almost 2 hours in the museum. Remember to fully charge your camera batteries before heading to the museum!
