After the visit of the palace we went to the village walking around the shops and houses. It offer variety of cosmetics, hand made shops which offer classes, coffee shops with nice atmosphere. Worth going for sure.

The view was great and very ancient. Feels like Kyoto. If you have issues with legs, suggest to get a cab up there. The stairs will drain your energy.

You can get lost in the Street of this very cosy place, really feeling to be in a village and not in Seoul

We were lost looking for this place as it is spread out and not very well signed. I would have enjoyed hearing about the place through a guide. Go when you aren't tired. The teriyaki chicken stick and beer saved the afternoon for me!

This is an area where ordinary people live. Many houses are in traditional Korean form, but not sure whether they are newly built or historical. They are all similar so after a while you feel so so.

Loved how everyone were wearing hanbok. Village is full of cute shops, where you can spend all your money on beautiful Korean made clothes. Prices are little bit cheaper than Myeongdong shopping street. From village you can walk to the Palace.

Samcheongdong / Bukchon
This historic neighbourhood was traditionally home to
Seoul’s middle and upper-classes. Now it’s most famed
for its clusters of beautiful, traditional Korean
homes (called hanok), many of which are found in
Bukchon. Many of these homes have now been converted
into restaurants, cafes, shops, and even guesthouses,
and their unique architecture offers a look at Korea’s
traditional beauty. Samcheongdong’s main and side

I don't know there is a museum. But the whole area is good enough for you to spend a few hours there.
