D Museum is a hike up a sleepy hill in Hannam but the contents of Spatial Illumination made it worth the huff and puff to get there.
Like stepping into another world, the exhibit puts you inside the whimsy and fun, color and light. Here lies our own personal wonderland that you can share with a chunk of the Seoul population if you go after noon on a holiday (like me 😀 ). The displays are bold, big, gorgeous and inspiring. Each room flows from the last but each distinct and surprising. I loved each part separately and as a whole.
The exhibit runs through May 8th, so get there soon. They do allow all the pictures you want to take so the place is very popular with the young crowd. The last weekend will no doubt be packed like a sardine can.

The sterile exit that perfectly ended the light show and drops you into the gift shop. Where I naturally spent too much money.
