An important note on Jeju’s updated bus system and this blog post
From August 2017, Jeju Island implemented a new city and intercity bus system. It increased the number of buses in service, while simplifying the routes, fees and numbering system.
Consequently, the contents of this previously published blog post may have changed. We therefore would kindly request that you consult this page for new bus maps in English on VisitJeju.net, and this page on our blog for a chart of the old and new bus route numbers.
If you read Korean, then the province’s official bus system website is a useful and up-to-date resource. We hope you’ll enjoy your travels on Jeju Island!
Today, I’d like to introduce the Miracle Art Museum, where you can amuse your senses with perceptual illusions, and 3D & 5D entertainment!
▲The entrance and exterior of the Museum
Next to the limestone gray museum is the fountain that resembles the grand Trevi Fountain in Rome.
▲The way to the 3D Exhibit Hall
As soon as we walked in, we were provided a pair of 3D glasses. Be sure to wear the eyewear while you follow the signs through the dim hallway; you’ll witness various 3D images of marine and plant life.
The myriad of visual entertainment marks only the beginning of this stimulating tour.
▲ The Interior of the 3D Hall
Now that we’ve gone through the, lets enter!
Through the darkness of the exhibition hall, we saw the stunning colors of the sea and forest.
▲Mirror Trick Art
If you tread across the red carpet, on to the second floor, mirrors surround the entire room. This place is called the mirror trick art, where you can imagine photograph yourself with the different settings in the mirrors. If you heed the advice of the billboard suggestions, you’ll be rewarded with the best photo.
▲ A photograph with a piece of illusory art
The scale of each piece seems to match the grandeur of the museum itself. It’s certainly entertaining to dive into the illusions of each piece.
▲Outdoor resting area on the way to the 5D Theater
After a short respite taking a walk and visiting the waterfall in the relaxing outdoor, we made our way to the 5D amphitheater. As explained in the pamphlet, this 5D theater spans 360 degrees and has a circumference of 40m.
▲ Interior of the 5D Circular Theater
Wherever you sit, you’d be able to enjoy the dynamic entertainment. Unfortunately, the dim interior and the perceptual entertainment did not allow me to fully capture the beauty of the film. The content of the film is of deep sea exploration.
Be sure not to miss the thrill of a massive marine animal zip toward you.
▲ View of the exterior from the café
We arrived at the end of our tour with the film. The experience was a little bizarre and intriguing. If you’re looking to enrich your picture album with quirky photos, be sure to pay this place a visit.
