  • This museum-estate, whose history is related to the two famous personalities of Korean history. In the 16 century lived Ins Samdan with his family, the most famous woman in Korea-an artist, calligrapher, poet. Her portrait-on money banknote 50000 won. Also here lived and one of her three sons, and Yul, an outstanding culture, educator. His portrait on the banknote in 5000 won. The farmstead has largely retained its vintage look, some of its buildings have survived the centuries and stand still. Having visited here, you can imagine how Korean aristocrats lived in 16-17 centuries. There is also a separate building where valuable paintings and manuscripts, which were sponsored by Shin and Samdan Yulgok. The farmstead is situated on the hillside of overgrown Pine Hill. In the spring of its territory is surrounded by a blooming rododendronah and pions. Outside the House is a platform where during certain hours, several times a day, artists arrange presentation with music and dancing in the Korean tradition. The spectacle simply unforgettable! Next to the Museum-estate there are several nice eateries.

  • A famous historical place, a birth place of 신사임당 and her son 율곡이이. Only heard of this place way back in elementary school, but I got to visit here, along with the 2018 Winter Olympic games! There was a free guide (in Korean only) at every hour for about 30 minutes, and the guide is very specific and thorough about the history of each building and tree. Very educational and much more helpful than just wandering around by yourself! The tickets were pretty cheap (less than $5), and there was free wifi all over the area...which was not a surprise. They had some traditional Korean games set up in the courtyard, so we had fun reminiscing the past. They also had special exhibition of the real pieces for the Winter Olympics season!
  • Old fashioned and old complex were built in noble at Cho-sūn king dom. They were so social tied. They established these living culture.
  • It was nice place. Its better with a guide or someone who understands the history to explain it
  • I've visited this place! Good source to know Korean Culture.
  • Magnificent place. Must visit site if you have an interest for Korean culture, history and architecture. Clue: It's the home of both the man on the 5,000 KRW bill and the woman on the 50,000 KRW bill.
