Lauren loves going to science museums and despite the name, Samsung Children’s Museum is also one. There was no doubt that we would be visiting the place once I found out about it. It conveniently located near a subway stop, around 5 minute walk from the exit.
The first floor contains some interesting displays, a ticket booth as well as a pantry area for visiting students to have their snack or meals. The science fun starts on the 2nd floor.
The first exhibit area was a play area called “Build A House“. Children get to be part of a construction crew complete with reflectorized vest.
This one was about light and photography called “Art of Light“.
While we were there, a lot of different school kids were also having a field trip, happily playing with different science exhibits.
Getting thirsty from all that interactions, no worries since they’ve got water dispensers conveniently located together with small cone cups.
The “Rolling Ball Playground” was quite interesting even for me, with balls zipping here and there through transparent tubes all around the exhibit.
Our family’s favorite area in any science museum is always the ones that deal in water. We even joined in the fun, helping explain some concepts to Lauren along the way.
A trip around the museum takes about 1 hour depending on how long your kids interact with the different exhibits. I’d think children 9 years old and under will be able to enjoy the place more.
Samsung Children’s Museum is not that big but its a good change of pace for kids during a visit to Seoul, South Korea.The place is clean and accessible and despite most of the exhibits only displaying Korean characters, the kids still a good amount of fun and exploration.
After a visit to the museum, you can then proceed to Lotte World, an indoor/outdoor theme park and mall, which is a short walk away.
