The staff and presentations are interactive; you can throw a pot on a traditional Korean potters' wheel (assisted by a potter) and even arrange for... More

This is a must visit place which transport you back to the past village lives of Koreans. It is used mostly as film sets for many of the Korean TV dramas and films. So lovers of such drama shows will find this place especially more attractive.

This is the best place to learn about Korea in old days. Korean Folk Village an open museum, so we can feel more realistic about their lives back then. We can see their homes, government office, nobleman mansion, etc. The highlight of this attraction is their performance : farmer dance, equestrian, wedding ceremony, so take a look at their timeline...
