We ve been to SokCho lots of times but never visited this place. We went there w.out plan. Luckily when we arrived there traditional farmers music performance just started. That was very exciting. There are activities for the children and my son enjoyed it.

Replica of the housing in the 50's and 60's . Has pictures of the Sokcho area in the 1950 and how it looks today. Has a multi-storey tower that you can go up and get a good view of the Sokcho area.
