Children's Museum National Museum of Korea

Renovated in 2012, the Children’s Museum is a great place to visit with younger kids up to Elementary school. This is a venue where children can appreciate the history while playing games as they see with their own eyes, touch with their own hands, and feel with their own heart.

You will find five different sections to discover how people used to live in the past: Home, Pottery, Clothes, Music & Art and finally War.

All the exhibitions are accompanied with really cool features like walls with magnetic puzzles, reproduction of real artifacts or broken pieces of the old pottery and vases which the kids can try to put all together pretending to be an archaeologist or conservator. A recent addition is a scaled kiln in the pottery area. There are a few interactive games as well such as a rice-cropping challenge.

If the weather is nice, there is an amazing outside playground.

The Museum proposes additional educational programs but unfortunately they are all provided only in Korean language.
