The Love Museum describes itself as as place where you can enjoy a fun and healthy awareness of sex through experiential art, and it’s also just a great place to take pictures. My boyfriend and I had a lot of fun exploring Hongdae’s Love Museum and Trick Eye Museum, located in the same building.
There are a lot great photo opportunities here: some will make you laugh, some will make you blush, and some are just really pretty.
It’s a popular place amongst couples and friends, so try to go on a not-so-busy day to avoid waiting for other people to take their pictures!
