South Korea’s Awesome Optical Illusion Museum

World travelers Michael Powell and Jrgen Horn have embarked on an ambitious journey nearly two years ago in which they trek all across the globe, spending three months at a time in each of their chosen destinations. The sightseeing duo document all the places they visit in their travel blog, For 91 Days, with little recaps of their days with accompanying photographs. The ongoing globe-trotting project has led the explorers from the the heart of Savannah, Georgia to the culturally rich nation of Bolivia to their current location in the metropolis of Busan, South Korea.

While in Busan, Powell and Horn discovered the engaging magic of optical illusions at The Trick Eye Museum, which happens to be located underneath the Heosimcheong Spa. After a visit to the spa, the travelers were just loose enough to take some really comical pictures that would require a sense of humility. The series of shots the duo have produced from their interactions with the inviting environment are more than just visual records of their day. They are a collection of imaginative illusions. There’s a fun and lighthearted feeling just from looking at the photos. These are also great images for putting Busan on people’s traveling radar and to gain more traffic for the museum.
