After walking around Bukchon Hanok Village, we were looking for toilets when we chanced upon this. Turned out to be the best consequence of a bathroom-search:)

Located up a side road, it's almost devoid of tourists. Walking around the Baek In-Je House, I could imagine how the rich lived in privilege a long time ago. There are English translations so it's easy to understand.

This is a small museum mansion. Built in 1913 by a pro-Japanese business tycoon, later bought by several people and in the end bought by Baek In Jae-an activist. The mansion has tatami room. Worth a visit.

This house is definitely small and a bit hard to locate (the entry point is on 7-gil, which looks like a little side street turnoff from the community center on the corner), but well worth the visit. There is a single guided tour that is offered daily and the language in which it is offered varies by day - check the schedule if you are interested. I did not get a chance to take it, but I believe that the guided tour is the only means by which you can actually enter the house; otherwise you are free to roam around yourself and peer at the interior through the windows. I would offer that the pamphlet provided for the self-guided tour is adequate, and they also provide some other multimedia displays and placards throughout the house. You can see enough of the interior to make the self-guided tour interesting, even without the ability to enter directly.

Most interesting part of this house was the explanation provided on how the house/floor heating system worked in Korean design. It was the only explanation I saw in the various places I visited in Seoul.

All the rooms were blocked off so you can only look in through the windows. It was nice to see what the traditional house looked like with all the furniture. We were there less than 15 minutes. Good thing it was free because I would not pay money for this place.

One of the best Hanok experiences in Seoul for me. You can visit the inside of the yard and the house, the old house architecture with wooden doors and awnings make the pictures taken very beautiful. You can visit for free, the museum area is quite hidden so the number of visitors is not much, so you can freely travel inside comfortably.

Like many tourists we came across this accidentally - we'd walked around the village and saw the signs for this, assuming it would be a paid for tourist attraction rather than museum. We walked up the hill and eventually found it - a quiet oasis.

It really gave us an insight into the buildings we had seen in the Hanok village. The signs are in English setting out the history of both this and similar houses.

This museum is for free and should not be overlooked if you are interested in history and culture. For granted, this was inhabited by a very rich person and does not symbolize how "people lived" in any way. I could just wander around and let my fantasy roam! I would love to recreate this style and house with its setup and "live happily ever after". A real dream home to me!

Also you can leave your drink outside in a holder, no one will touch it and you can pick it up when you are done. Eating and drinking inside the museum is not allowed, but they do have a "drink-guard" at the entrance ;)

Well worth a visit if you are in the bukchon area. This house museum is free and gives you a look into how life was like for the Korean elite in the past. This is a real house that has been converted to a museum. It is in the middle of other old historical houses that people still live in. A very worthwhile visit.

Well manicured historical home with preserved furniture and building. There are videos to explain the history as well as plaques to identify the different aspects of the home.

I visited as part of the free tour from the Incheon Airport, so I can't speak about how easy it is to find. I would allocate only about 30 minutes to this and make sure to include it in all the other palaces, attractions that are within walking distance. It was free to visit and I enjoyed experiencing historical Korean life.
