Seeing is Believing: Korea History
May 2019 • Couples
It felt like we walked into a space from long long time ago. The Folk Museum showed different scenes across the different periods. Really awed by the amount of effort that was put into the displays. It's like a miniature museum that felt so real and if you have gone to Gyeongbokgung Palace before this, it really is amazing.

If you want to have some food after the museum, I recommend the very traditional Korean Food after you exit the museum - Jumak. Refer to my last picture, I was really worried I wouldnt be able to satisfy my craving on Hobak Jeon (Korean Zucchini Fritters) but i found it at the window display of Jumak! If you happen to be looking for this as well, it's at Level 3 of Lotte World Adventure :)

to be honest, i wasn’t expecting to be as impressed as i was with the museum, but i am so glad that we paid it a visit in the middle of our trip to the theme park, and i would highly recommend others to do the same.

my personal favourite is the miniature zone in the last part of the exhibition where there are tiny, amazingly detailed dollhouse-like displays depicting what korean life was like in the past (attached a few photos in this review). if i had more time i would have tried to look through every single one of the displays. beautifully done.

Worth a visit. Give it a try.

One may think that it’s going to be boring visiting museum while in Lotte World. You can’t be more wrong. The museum is extremely well done. From pre-historic to the latest dynasty and the modern day - you can learn so much. The life size exhibits are animated and some have narration in different language of your choice. They have really nice replica of the historical buildings, villages, temples, palaces and people way of life. Even the miniature have expressions on their face.
After visiting some of the major attractions such as the seokguram, Gyeongju, and the palaces in Seoul. This scale down summary of all places added more to our understanding. I conclude don’t miss it. Give it a try.

Pleasant surprise - definitely recommended

Came to Lotte World for the rides and attractions - didn't even give the Folk Museum a passing thought until my dad mentioned that it was included in our admission ticket. We decided to drop by to have a look around (had no idea what to expect) but it turns out that this museum is an intricately curated collection of both life-sized and miniature models and displays of Korean life throughout the ages. There were moving "robots" showing how life was in the olden times (Joseon and Silla dynasty etc) and also replicas of how a typical home would look like in those days - all the way up to the Japanese colonial period. There are even interactive aspects of the visit as they let you try simple and traditional mock-up Korean games.

The most impressive part was probably the cavernous room filled with miniature displays of a typical day at the Palace or village.The careful attention to detail was amazing and I could definitely feel that lots of thought and effort went into preparing the exhibitions. It was quite empty when we visited - think this place is a hidden gem and is not to be missed!

The hidden sepul
Aug 2018 • Friends
Really hidden in the Lotte Advanture world
If we were not given the offer to pay extra 20,000W we wouldn’t have known about this museum

It is really nice in the 3rd floor of the Lotte Advanture world theme park, you can learn a lot about the Korean tradition and also have a panoramic view of the old villages how did the look like , moreover I’ve learned about the 3 old dynasties and emperor of Korea
It also have some pottery workshop place where you can learn how to do you pottery work and also paint them , restaurants and souvenir shops were also available

Nice and must to do

A hidden gem!!
Jun 2018
Totally undiscovered place in Seoul! We really enjoyed this museum. One of the great things about Korean museums (there are so many interesting ones in Seoul) is that they are mostly deserted! You can really reflect and enjoy the greatness of museums, which meant to be. In my opinion, Korea is still undiscovered:)

The museum is accessible from different subway lines and is inside of the Lotte World. It is located on the third floor. When you arrive at the Jamsil subway station, follow the Lotte World sign and Folk Museum sign will appear. Just follow the sign. If you are not sure, ask the Lotte Adventure theme park employee. It is worth visiting if you are in Seoul. It costs 5000 won for an adult to enter. You won't regret!

Lotte Adventure for Histrory Lover and for Seniors
Mar 2018 • Family
While my kids play around Lotte Adventure rides with my wife, i took my senior in laws to this museum. There they enjoyed everything to know about Korean Folk from prehistoric time to modern time. On display are historical clothing, tools, and shelters. We were treated to life size and miniatures dioramas about Korean historical way of life. Displays are extensive and we spent 1 1/2 hours enjoying it. At the end of the displays are shops and restaurants. This is the most memorable Lotte Adventure for my in laws.

A great Korean Folk Museum which deserves more attention -

Actually, this museum visit was not on my agenda. I was going to see what the 'Lotte World Adventure' was all about. Since I did not want to do all these attraction I walk around and saw the entrance to this museum. As the price was only Won 5,000 , I decided to have ad look. I great decision. I spend about 1 1/2 hours in there and got a lot of interesting information about Korean history. The displays are very nice and explanations most of the time also in English. I had a great time!!

A hidden gem - truly brilliant workmanship.
Aug 2017
I don't know what the cost of entry would be as entry is included when you purchase a day ticket to Lotte World.

Before going any further; if history, old bones and artifacts or amazing modelling aren't your thing. Don't bother with this place.

However if they are, then this is an iron clad; DO NOT MISS.

The sheer sizes is a spin out, the sheer quality of attention to detail, the amount of information provided et al make this a brilliant stop.
