This museum is small and doesn't take a lot of time ... about an hour. We learned a lot as this was not a subject that we were familiar with. The area is interesting to walk through as well.

I thought this was better than I had projected - I learned a lot. Yes, there is not as much English as I needed, but it was very visual. There are hands-on activities and an opportunity for a Korean foot bath which was blissful.

The place is interesting, laid out over 3 floors. It is child friendly. There are a lot of digital interactions and films, most of these have a button for choosing English. Unfortunately the static displays and writing on cards is all in Korean, and it...More

A free museum, well marked and deserving of more than an amble in an area full of medicinal value. I do mean the average shop in the area will test your Ginseng/root/shoot/plant/quotient. Most of the shops mark price in a language most foreigners can understand...More

In the museum, you can learn and see many things which have been used as the oriental medicine from the pas till now. And also, you can experience it yourself!

The exhibits are okay but nothing really noteworthy or spectacular. The latin names for Korean plants and herbs aren't very helpful either. The location is especially poor if you're driving. The three way becomes a bottleneck at lunch time.

I have visited this museum and it was really interesting than I expected. There are many sections separated in each category for the oriental medicine and how they use those in real life. I gained a lot of knowledge from there as well as enjoy...More
