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

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

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.

If you are interested in the history of the Korean traditional medicine this is the place for you. It is centrally located and has some of the best bad taxidermy that I have seen in South Korea. I was almost in tears from laughter.

Went there with a tour group. The museum is very interesting and the people that work there were very pleasant. You should be able to get through the entire museum in about an hour or two. Be sure to check out the herbal medicine maket...More
