Lotte World Cultural Museum

within the above complex : one stop I highly recommend for those new to Korea, where you can walk through miniature buildings and people in a time-passage from pre-historic times to the Japanese Occupation . best part is even after you are done, for at the exit of the Museum a town of Korean restaurants awaits you . try any of the traditional cuisine centered around cooked-vegetables, which has kept their ancestors healthy for long .
adult entrance W5,000 open 9:30am~11pm every day

( if you have more time and feel adventurous : “Korean Folk Village” is a routine tourist spot with actual size counterparts of the above miniatures, 1:30 hours drive South of Seoul – with bus departing from several spots within Seoul including here at JamShil Subway Station Exit 6 and KangNam Subway Station Exit 6)
