One of the things we did in Seoul was go to the Children’s Museum. I had heard it was a good one and since it’s cold there now, we needed some indoor activities. After taking 3 different subways (one was so crowded, we could barely breathe) and getting lost for 30 minutes walking around, we found it!
It has 3 floors of activities and man, it was so worth the effort in trying to find it. Admittedly, I was very upset we got lost and wanted to go home but my mom checked around 1 last corner and there it was. Sneaky sneaky. The kids had a blast. We’ve been to 1 other Children’s Museum and some of the activities were similar but still, it was amazing.
The first thing we walked into was a room of balls. You could use several different means to get the balls to the top of this cage and when it was full enough, it would dump out onto the kids and then you’d start all over again. My kids thought this was the best, it was hard to get them to move into a different room.
The next thing we did was a jungle gym where we could learn about animals and plants and there was also a construction site where Piglet moved a crane around, filled it with blocks, dumped it, repeated. You know. They loved the slide in the nature area. There was a dress up part too but no one was really interested in that.
The last things we did was this wall of pom poms and a light area. The pom poms were a hit, we play with them at home so seeing an entire wall of them was mind blowing. The light area was super cool, there was a place to build colored blocks that would glow, a giant litebrite game. It was also the hardest one to play with because the other kids were all up in their way. Oh well.
The other activities were more dress up and pretend play – be a cook, be a sushi chef, etc. but my kids weren’t interested. There was also a huge water section that we had to hide from the kids because it was like 30 degrees outside and I was not taking 2 wet, grumpy kids on the train home.
Overall, it was an awesome day. I’m glad we were able to find it, it was totally worth it.
