  • I took my two year old on a weekday and we had a blast. Not a lot of parking, so get there early.
  • Great place for kids!They have coffee shop but no restaurant. Better bringing your own food.
  • Excellent for kids upto lower elementary school and for those still interested in the sciences
  • Nice place for kids. Free slide outside, fosil of dinosaur could be found in here. Tour staring from the top floor to bottom. Quiet nice scientific library for kids, and s cup of coffee for parents. Good for taking a walk around Ahnsan mountain from here, can reach to the Independence gate toward the heart (Center) of Seoul. Need to be hurry for parking car. During weekend, volunteers are leading cars to YonBuk Middle School ground for car parking.
  • Very good museum with a lot to offer all ages, only downside is it's relatively small. But in my opinion quality always beats quantity.
