Samsung Children’s Museum in Seoul, South Korea

If you’re bringing kids to South Korea, one of the places you may want to check out is the Samsung Children’s Museum.

Samsung Children’s Museum is really more like a science center and indoor playground. It’s designed for children ages 0-12.

Our first stop was the Art of Light exhibit which explains and demonstrates the concept of light and photography. Unfortunately, everything’s in Korean so the kids just played around with the exhibits.

We then proceeded to the Hello, Music! section which explains the concept of sound. Yes, everything’s in Korean. At least the kids could do the experiments hands on!

Okay I don’t know what this is… some sort of wheel you spin. XD

Water wheels, water guns, water pumps… there are all sorts of water-related stuff to tinker with.

This is the Rolling Ball Playground. You can manipulate balls in tubes and mazes in order to propel them from one part of the room to the next. It’s so cool and it reminds me of those segments in Sesame Street where they’d have balls moving on tracks and in tubes.

This cannon is part of the Rolling Ball Playground. You load it with plastic balls and then try to hit a target.

This is a driving game wherein you manipulate a hot air balloon to different countries then learn a bit about them. It’s all in Korean though so we just looked at the pictures. XD

This is yet another interactive display which we couldn’t quite understand.
Entrance to the Samsung Children’s Museum costs 6,000 won (around P228) for children 3-12 years old and 5,000 won (around P190) for adults. For complete information and exact location, log on to the official website at http://kids.samsungfoundation.org/eng/index.asp. It’s closed every Monday.

Although everything was in Korean, the kids found it interesting enough to interact with the exhibits. Tickets are quite reasonably priced and the facilities are better than what we have here in the Philippines so it may be worth a visit. Recommend this for kids 3-8 years old. My 11-year old was still mildly interested but younger kids would enjoy more.
