teamLab World is a global art collaboration exhibition that opened its door in Seoul less than a year ago in August 2016.
‘teamLab World: Dance! Art Museum, Learn & Play! Future Park’, is a fantastic Art World and Future Park that have been created for adults and children by the art collective teamLab. – teamLab Seoul Website
It’s a great place to take photos, and if you have children, it’s definitely going to be a great experience for them. Since this Art Park is next to Lotte World, an indoor amusement park in Seoul, you can spend the whole day in the same area having fun 🙂
How to get there
teamLab is located next to Lotte World entrance, nearest to Jamsil station on Seoul Metro line 2, Exit 4.
Exhibition Opening Hours: 10.00AM – 09.00PM
Ticket Booth Opening Hours: 09.30AM – 08.00PM
Entrance Fee and what’s inside
Ticket prices for adults are 20,000 KRW and 24,000 KRW for children below age of 12. The funny thing is, children below 12 actually have to pay a higher price for entry to teamLab. This is my first time seeing such a unique pricing! When I was there, there was a 20% off promotion for children if they visit on the weekdays – you can check their website to see their latest promotions.
When you step into the exhibition zone, you’ll see interactive wall digital murals that is projected by the projectors. There are also special areas where you can contribute to the digital mural by drawing on a piece of paper and then using some sort of scanner to transfer it digitally to the computer, which will then send it to the projected image. It’s quite hard to explain the exhibits in words, but in summary, I thought it was pretty amazing. Not to mention, some of the really pretty displays that are photo-worthy.
After taking tons of photos and walking through the exhibition, you will reach the most iconic part of teamLab World which is the 3D art space. It’s basically columns of light that are arranged in a way that when you take a photo in it, it looks quite magical.
Beware though, once you pass this exhibit (you need to queue for it), you can’t go back to the previous areas because it acts as a one way exit point. So, only go through once you have seen everything else inside.
Although I felt like the exhibition area was pretty small and hence it’s quite expensive to go to, this would be a good place to bring children to. Or a good place for photo-taking lovers to experiment with low light portraits. If you are planning to visit teamLab, consider going to Lotte World too since it’s right next door!
