The Simone Handbag Museum, which is located in Gangnam area, houses one of the finest collections of handbags in the world. The architecture of the museum is indeed an interesting design; in the shape of a bag. Who would have thought of this? Clever idea, isn't it?

 Its collections include bags dated back to the 1500s and the latest 'it' bags of the 21 century. The museum is divided into two themes; third floor - modern gallery and fourth floor - historical gallery. Photos are not allowed to be taken in the museum but a booklet with information of each bags is given when purchasing an admission ticket. The collections are available on the museum's website as well; click here
