Seoul Science Park Namsan- let’s explore the fun world of Science!

Three levels of hands-on games and experiences to learn the magic of physics, space exploration, human body, sound waves and more! A great introduction to science for kids of all ages in family or for a school field trip.

Come discover Seoul Science Park Namsan branch, a public museum providing interactive introduction to the world of science. The museum occupies the underground levels in the Seoul Education Research & Information Institute building near the Namsan public library. It is a sister branch to the main museum located in Gwanak-gu.

This is a smaller and much more modest venue than the highly recommended Gwacheon National Science Museum. The museum is a bit oldish however it covers a wide variety of science related activities. Our kids had a great time experiencing each discovery corner, whether it was space, physics, colors, human body, forces of nature, etc. It is a good option especially on a rainy day if you are in Seoul downtown area.

You will find dozens of experiences such as: building an arch-shape bridge, playing with sound frequencies, fooling with a kaleidoscope, rolling-ball games, gravity tests, pretend x-ray biking, driving a miniature train, creating a steam twister, flying a balloon using an air-blowing machine, etc. Kids will also be impressed with the human body complexity (check out the 3D transparent models) and how it looks like to have a baby in mummy’s womb. There is also a small nature section showing up butterflies, insects and small aquariums.

You may also want to visit the upper floors in the same building where you will find a Folk Craft museum and a free indoor activity playzone.
