Samsung Children’s Museum – Learning Without Teaching

Thanks for the free tickets, Cathy!

One weekend, we decided to bring Little Dynamo (and Baby Dynamo, of course – though he can’t understand a thing yet) to Samsung Children’s Museum in Songpa-gu, Sincheon-dong for our weekend date.

It’s a good place to bring kids to. Kids will have a lot of fun without the feeling of being taught. It’s learning while playing. The museum has several areas for children to explore. As soon as you get on the second floor, kids could play carpenter and help in building the house. But Little Dynamo didn’t stay long here.


He went on to the next area which he enjoyed with his Daddy so much. They explored the universe together: p6120602

A small area is allocated to children’s dream to be whatever and whoever they are. They can don some costumes available in this Kid’s Dream Theater. p6120611

This area happens to be Little Dynamo’s favorite. Water could be very enticing to kids. Kids learn different ways to pump water while they get wet. p6120662

We stayed very long and went back several times in this “submarine” which Little Dynamo operated to his heart’s content while watching all kinds of sea creatures. p6120675

Nothing beats this experience! Little Dynamo finally got his hands on the ultra-sound machine and watched the ultra-sound screen to check the baby on the mommy’s tummy.  This is very special to him as the experience of going to the Ob/gyn with mommy stayed on his memory.  He remembered our trips to the doctor together where he heard Baby Dynamo’s heartbeat, saw the tiny spot that became Baby Dynamo on the screen and he was always itching to touch the machine to rub on my tummy. He was grinning from ear to ear while doing this. p6120711

There are many areas to explore in the museum. There are four floors housing all the exhibits and ample space for children to enjoy.

The museum is open from Tuesdays to Sundays, 9:30am – 6:00pm.

  1. I like the valuable info you provide in your articles. I will bookmark your blog and check again here frequently. I’m quite certain I’ll learn many new stuff right here! Best of luck for the next!

  2. hi, I saw your blog. It seems a lot of good place for child.
    I currently live with my wife and my children. All of us don’t know Korean.
    so, it’s difficult for us to find some resources for the kids.

    the samgsung museum looks great.
    Could you please give me more detailed direction of this museum?
    (We live near Yeoksam station on line2)

    Thank you
