A museum that shows a traditional Koran Village where you can visit traditional houses that have been restored and you can feel the historic atmosphere of the area.
It is located in Jung-gu, a central district of Seoul. It is not far from the N Seoul Tower, so you can visit both of them the same morning, just like we did.
The village has a traditional garden with a pavilion and a pond, that was totally frozen when we visited the place, and a group of five traditional Hanoks. Hanok is the Korean name for traditional house. All of them have been restored to recreate the architecture and atmosphere of the Joseon Dynasty.
You cannot go into the houses but you can take a look inside. There are pieces of furniture and a lot of household goods according to the old times in the area. You can understand the daily life of the people, from royalty to commoners.
Sometimes traditional wedding ceremonies take place there and a lot of Koreans and foreigners take photos with the couples. We couldn’t see this because marriage ceremonies are typically held on weekends. You can also enjoy several dramas and dances performed on weekends at an outdoor stage in the pavilion. It was a pity that we visited the village not on a weekend, but we could try several traditional games. We played spinning tops and tried ‘tuho’ (arrow throwing). We really had a very good time.
