  • Would love to get into the Museum and for good reason! On the Museum's website, you can view detailed information about tours and other activities. I got about 16:00, at the checkout when buying the ticket, the cashier told us that soon will begin tour of the Hall of geology, is very important to me, could not go. While waiting for the tour looked the hall dedicated to the indigenous people of the island, there is also a Hall of Korea, Hall of great geographical discoveries and others. Good quality live local lore! Here of course as any other will see local animals, stuffed animals and clothes of ancient people, but also some surprises, too, will spojlit' not going)) Museum you can read interactive information terminals in the Hall, but is better with a guide, he will talk about the edge much longer. It is possible and necessary to go with children, if you have suddenly)) there's lots of interesting stuff for them too. And not very big, will not lose concentration and not get tired of poured in requirements. I also managed to film show about Korea, the session began in 18:00 The Museum of miracle-both inside and out! A pleasant visit!

  • Museum miracle! The building of Japanese architecture, the former building of the former Japanese prefecture, built in the time of the Japanese authorities on the island. Exhibits of darkness! All and not simply to describe! Have something to watch! Informative! Interesting! Well done! This is great! Here are my emotions about this site!
