BEHOLD MY 83 PICTURE POST! because I tried my best to show you MOST of what’s inside. but if I am not wrong they change certain stuff from time to time so it wouldn’t ALWAYS be the same. I’m just guessing it judging that there are new posters outside wrapped with see through plastic.

been wanting to come here but I kept forgetting until a reader told me to visit it and so I did!

this place would probably take around 2 hours if you would like to take a lot of pictures. I think a tripod is unnecessary since there are plenty of people inside and also workers to help you take pictures. the downside of it would be the PRICE. it costs 13,000won. that’s quite expensive to me but oh well..

if you know where is Hongik University then all problems are settled. say, you are from the subway and you wanna walk to Hongik Univ., you will definitely pass by that crowded and popular Hongdae street. spot for Tony Moly and Holika Holika and walk IN BETWEEN that road. and you’ll see it. if not. click here, set to full size then scroll to the bottom.

the museum is located at Santorini Gallery. my 2nd dream honeymoon vacation is Santaroni if you do not know haha. so it’s kind of nice to have a mini Santorini here.

this is how it looks. I was quite shocked with it’s shabby outlook but never let it fool you. it’s actually not that bad. just go down 2 floors and…….

IMG_1259 copy

IMG_1261 copy

I don’t know how some people took this picture like as if the hand is popping out from the ground. I tried that drink; Pocari Sweat, it’s like a super (duper) sucky 100plus.

you can also paint on porcelains =D for 5,000won. and that’s the promotion price.

there will be a room upon exit of the museum for you to play “find Waldo” except that there’s no Waldo hahaha. once you’re done you can then collect your “prize” from spinning the wheel. they are all old kiddy snacks. old as in they were probably available in the 80s not like it’s expired. =D.
