  • Amazing Museum for children and their parents. Boldly plan to spend the whole day here. Easy-near Metro Station Seoul Grand Park. Tickets-funny 4000 won per adult and two cheaper per child. There are budget dining. Two floors of the impressive building crammed with funky exhibitions: on your toes here explain the underlying science things will look inside the human body, or see the skeletons of prehistoric monsters. That immediately come to life on a huge screen! You can get inside the space station or visit the cockpit and 380 (they back this piece of the fuselage there!). On the street-the Planetarium, the Dinosaur Park and a place for games. However, you can play everywhere: all is absolutely safe and no housekeeper's aunt shikajushhej you will not find here. And growing up creative qualified people.

  • The ticket price is very reasonable and there's a lot to see here. The natural sciences gallery has recently been updated, but still has some decidedly amateurish taxidermy. Some other galleries are quite dated. I'd like more English signage. Also the restaurant and gift shop could use improvement. Seriously...I'd love to buy cool science sets.... and we always take a packed lunch... but overall, this place is still pretty awesome... we've been here often.
  • You can experience and enjoy the science. Science is invisible, but you can see it here. I got good impression.
  • Poor convenience store prep. Convenient parking. Compatible prices
  • A great place for locals but awful for foreign visitors! Guide books had recommended the gwacheon science museum as a place to go whilst in Seoul grand park so decided to give it a go on a rainy day, however, there was very little in English and all the interactive features told you what the apparatus was in English and then didn't explain how to use it or what it did. Very disappointed that we couldn't understand much, we left after 20 minutes.
  • There were exhibits for a wide range of children. The planetarium was engaging, but it was all in Korean. The science world exhibit was best suited for young children in ES. Lots of interactive exhibits.
