Whether you’re relieved or sad seeing your kids back to school, don’t forget it’s still summer in Seoul until close to end of September! So if your family is not yet ready for summer to end, pick a few items off our Summer List and go have some fun while the air is hot and the sun still shines!
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.
