We went to this place as part of the Discover Seoul Pass. Admission was free for the family. We thoroughly enjoyed taking pictures in all the sets especially the ones in the dark room.

My children loved this place. The Alive Museum and Dynamic Maze. We got there as soon as it opened so didn't have to contend with crowds. I imagine my review may be different if we were there on a weekend or during a busy time....More

The art pieces are somehow limited in comparison to the museums in other countries. Still a fun way to bond with friends and families. Recommended if you love taking pics or just having fun with friends. Otherwise you can skip this place...

The best place to visit if the weather is bad. Allocate 2-3hours for this place. Go early to avoid crowds.
