Are you an art lover? Gallery buff? Or are you wondering if a rainy day in Gangwon will spoil your trip? If so, why not visit HASLLA Art World in Gangneung, Gangwon-do? HASLLA Art World is a unique museum that immerses its guests within the art itself. Filled with various pieces and sculptures of different styles and techniques, you’ll have plenty to look at. If you think museums are boring or a waste of time, this place is sure to change your mind.
Here are a few highlights of HASLLA Art World in Gangneung, Gangwon-do.
You can buy your tickets in advance online or directly at the counter. I bought my tickets at the counter, which was super easy. However, depending on when you come, you may have to queue for on-the-door tickets. Tickets were 24,000 per adult, although there were some specific discounts available. Although this may seem expensive, its definitely worth it once you see what is inside.
Instagram-worthy Photo Zones
There are several areas in this museum that would make stunning backdrops for Instagram photos. However, I recommend bringing a camera with you in case the lighting isn’t great during your visit.
1) Hanging Mirrors
The first thing you will see when you enter the exhibition hall is a wall filled with hanging mirrors. Already, you may have to queue to take pictures, as many people like to take photos of the stunning display… or take mirror selfies with their friends.
2) Vintage Wall
Once you’re finished with the hanging mirrors, head down the stairs and you’ll see the vintage themed wall filled with elegant paintings. You’ll also see more mirrors, but this time with a vintage theme.
3) The Basement
The entire floor is a photo zone. There is a colourful flower wall with a rather haunting figure floating up high… don’t worry, he won’t be in your photo! There is also a cafe where you can relax and enjoy a beverage. Hold on to your entrance tickets for a 10% discount at the cafe!
Finally, if that wasn’t enough, the museum is located on a cliff overlooking the gorgeous turquoise sea of the Gangwon coast!
