I must admit there was not much in English, when we entered this nice little museum, but there are many visual arrangements, hands-on activities, and movies that give you a notion of what traditional Korean medicine is about. First of all, one should be aware...More

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.

The place is interesting, laid out over 3 floors. It is child friendly. There are a lot of digital interactions and films, most of these have a button for choosing English. Unfortunately the static displays and writing on cards is all in Korean, and it...More

Interesting museum, with plenty of information (not all in English) about Korean oriental medicine. It is a great place to spend a couple of hours. And it is free

Off the beaten path museum but easy to find near to main road and metro station. The surrounds has lovely cobblestone streets and artworks lining the walls. Below is a herbal market filled with fragrances. The museum is spread over two floors outlining the history...More

The museum was more interesting than I expected. It tells the story of the oriental medicine market and its impact on life and health in South Korea. Museum is free as is an audio guide in English. You can move at your own pace and...More

A free museum, well marked and deserving of more than an amble in an area full of medicinal value. I do mean the average shop in the area will test your Ginseng/root/shoot/plant/quotient. Most of the shops mark price in a language most foreigners can understand...More

In the museum, you can learn and see many things which have been used as the oriental medicine from the pas till now. And also, you can experience it yourself!

The exhibits are okay but nothing really noteworthy or spectacular. The latin names for Korean plants and herbs aren't very helpful either. The location is especially poor if you're driving. The three way becomes a bottleneck at lunch time.
