Before coming to Korea I was not fully aware of the existence of soju which is apparently a popular alcoholic beverage distilled from rice or potatoes. This museum will allow you get acquainted with the tradition of making soju and celebrating life with it . It is informative but if time is limited - it is of secondary importance.

It's definitely not worth the trip to Andong if you're not going already but if you've got a spare couple of hours the Soju Museum is an interesting place to visit. I believe you can get the bus there from Andong centre but we walked, it took just under an hour from the train station along roads with good paths and a nice pedestrian bridge over the river.
There's a display of the traditional production process of soju including a couple dioramas and some old pots, jugs and drinking cups. Not much English signage but the lovely lady looking after the place explained the process and answered our questions as best she could. There's also a series of display cases with (plastic) foods showing different kinds of traditional Korean foods served for celebrations or to royalty which has some English signage. Once we'd finished looking around the lady gave us a small cup of the soju to try - it was very strong but considering its alcoholic content quite smooth! It's possible to buy bottles of soju if you wish but no pushiness which is nice considering that there isn't an admission fee.

This museum is small & incorporates the food aspects of Korean culture too. A small display shows the still process & there is a few pots & ceramic water. Only a small portion has English translation, so more a visual exhibition. You can sample the soju (45% proof) at the end.
Bus 80 & 81 get your there & back, we got a taxi out & then opted to walk back to town, which half of follows the river side path.

The museum is tiny and you can walk thru it in about 5 mins. They have a tasting at the end, but it was the strongest tasting Soju I have ever had. I would recommend grab and boot and a buddy to get to enjoy Soju as opposed to wasting your time.

We arrived at the Soju Museum to find that it also is a Traditional Food Museum . Outside is a car park and a sign next to an old still for producing the soju. The exhibits show how the soju is made, starting years ago. Part of the museum is allocated to displays of food, and tables set for the rulers, or weddings etc. There is even a photo of Queen Elizabeth II with a huge display of food in front of her during her visit here a few years ago. I forgot to mention that the museum is in the grounds of the Soju brewery and after viewing the museum you will end up in a room where they sell Andong Soju, and at 45% it is the best and strongest soju in the country. We were allowed to take a few shots of the drink as well as a few crackers. Afterwards i bought a bottle in a beautiful bottle, and found out later it was 20% cheaper than the supermarket price. The museum is free and we enjoyed our visit.

We filled in a late morning with this. The English speaking guide was very informative. Ask bus 80 driver to drop off- it's next to a service station before the university. Return bus 81 across the road and wave it down 👋.
