This museum seems to be severely undersubscribed. Front desk gave us a discount on the ticket price without us asking for it, and the place was virtually deserted. This might be because of the extremely narrow focus (it is really much more about rice cakes than kitchen utensils, regardless of the name). Another reason could be that the ratio of educational materials to exhibits is probably 99:1, so the (rather limited) collection appears swamped in a sea of plastic props. I, however, found it interesting and a much more effective way to gain an insight into Korean culture than other attractions in town which are perpetually packed. The traditional tteok café on the ground floor (which can be visited without necessarily going into the museum at all) is a different matter, serving exquisitely presented Korean teas and rice cakes, and I loved it without reservations. Like the museum itself, however, it appeared very underused, which is a shame as it not easy, if at all possible, to find a comparable coffee shop offering this type of experience anywhere else in Seoul.

Good place to visit
It tells the history of Korean Rice Cake. I went there in the early morning so I just got to see the exhibition. I noticed that there is Kimchi making class ( guess that will be authentic) It doesn't take a long time to see all the exhibition. Nice to go on rainy day.

Don't forget to try the pretty tteok at cafe on the groud floor

The rice cake Museum is a beautiful place for both children and adults, you can see there the history and use of the rice cake.
After visiting the museum you can try the coffee shop located at the ground level, where you can choose between several types of cakes and coffees....I took Korean Coffee and 4 types of rice cake, I can tell you that it was the best coffee I tasted in years.

Very nice museum discovered on the way to Changdeokgong. We ordered a pot of flower tea each and some tteok and enjoyed the afternoon watching people passing by. Then we proceed to the museum upstairs as the entrance fee to the museum upstairs is free with purchase of food and drinks at the cafe. The museum is small but showed the different types of tteok and cultural significance of it. Small place but very unique and interesting.
