This museum is small and doesn't take a lot of time ... about an hour. We learned a lot as this was not a subject that we were familiar with. The area is interesting to walk through as well.

I thought this was better than I had projected - I learned a lot. Yes, there is not as much English as I needed, but it was very visual. There are hands-on activities and an opportunity for a Korean foot bath which was blissful.
