Top ways to experience Alive Museum Insadong and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Insadong
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 inside that sell handmade crafts and goods. This is the perfect neighborhood to sample a range of Korean dishes, with vegetarian Korean temple cuisine restaurants being a popular draw, but street food carts are just as famous. As a top tourist destination, crowds can swell, particularly on weekends, but you can find some rest and respite in one of the private art galleries or grab a cup of Korean tea in a tea house – many of which are located in beautifully renovated traditional Korean homes.

Says it’s accessible, but you can’t do anything part of it in a wheelchair!

Asked at the desk and they said definitely ok….
Took our money, but it’s not at all

We came as part of our Discover Seoul Pass activities. If we will to pay out of pocket, we probably will deem it not worth the money and a place which we could just skip.

This is a cool place and it is included in the Discover Seoul Pass.

It is conveniently located in insadong. You can also visit the KimchiKan and colorpool museum as they are on the same street.

There are quite a few interesting exhibits for you to take some cool photos.

We decided to do this because of we got the Discovery Seoul Pass. It was tricky looking for this place using naver (google map does not work well in Korea). It was actually located in the same basement as Dynamic Maze.

There are a lot more interactive exhibits here than the typical trick art museum which sets it apart, with several mazes like the mirrors room (think Bruce Lee), dark room as examples.

We also got lucky as this place is very near a highly rated insadong dumpling restaurant that I also reviewed.

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of reviewing The Alive Museum in Insa-dong. This is the largest 4D Art Museum in Korea, featuring tons of fun-artsy-stimulate-your-senses rooms where you can take pictures and truly enjoy yourself and just be a kid again. I was either smiling or uttering “와” and “대박” every few minutes! 👍😃😆. From trick art to artworks to media art there is so much to do! I must of taken over a hundred photos and half of the are with me in them, which is very surprising as I prefer being the photographer rather than being photographed - but this place is so fun and engaging, that you will be taking photos left and right, like me!🤩🤣😃 The Alive Museum is located in the basement next to the Dynamic Maze in the Daeil building in Insa-dong, just opposite of the Tapgol Park.
Thank you @alivemuseum_marketing for inviting me to review and for the vouchers. I had the inner child come out in me, and had a blast ❤️😃👍☺️

The best part for me is the Alive cafe where you can seem like you are into a comics. No actual food of course.
Interesting place.

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 because a selfie stick won’t work in here.
