“The Pino Familia” Museum opens in Seoul. The museum belongs to a collector of Pinocchio toys. What is interesting though is that the architectures of Moon Hoon company designed the building of the toy museum like the shape of the fairy tale hero himself when he lies and his nose gets longer.
Moreover, the nose is a water fountain and creates additional scenery for the visitors.
Giant Pinocchio sculptures welcome the visitors within the museum yard. The metallic surrounded three buildings have each a different concept.
The very first building exhibits the toys of Pinocchio himself. The second building, on the other hand includes the toys of the other figures within the tale. The third building has a store, a cafe and auditorium in it.
The buildings are also named with the inspiration of the tale: Waves and Whale, Whale Tale and The Nose Fountain.
The Whale Tale Building has a large concert and activity saloon where also films can be shown.
Two platforms are placed to construct “ear” like view at the two sides of the building where the fountain nose is also placed.
The second floor has a terrace where visitors can enjoy the view of the neighboring forest and the courtyard of the museum.
