I saw ads for this on the subway. Anyone been there? @.@

Quote:
The basement and the first and second floors house a café, a museum gift shop, a multi-brand shop and Simone’s own bag shop, as well as a DIY shop where customers can try their hand at making their own bags, and a massive leather shop for those who wish to buy original materials, including real alligator swatches priced around ₩1,250,000 (US$1,100).

“Many of the guests spend hours reading the captions, and some even write down all their questions and then come and ask us at the end,” says head curator Dawn Chung. “Even the men.”

It’ll probably still be difficult to get a man to darken the doors. “It’s only natural that men tend to keep away from such a feminine topic,” laughs Chung.

As one of our male acquaintances put it: “It’s ridiculous that a handbag museum exists in the first place. I’m never ever taking my girlfriend there. She’ll just get ideas.”

My initial reaction is: WTF? How materialistic can these airhead Korean girls be?!

My next reaction is: I'd go to a watch museum; what's the big deal if someone wants to go to a handbag museum, and why does that make them an airhead?

My final reaction is: *shrug* Live and let live.
