It was smaller than we thought it would be but it did not disappoint! We have a 2 and 3 year old and they liked it. Not an all day trip though. 3 hours max.

This museum is tucked away and hidden from regular traffic, but don't expect that to mean it'll be empty. The adult fee is a reasonable 3,000 won. There are lockers on the main floor for you to store bags or coats. The museum is not...More
