I stayed in Seoul for awhile but for most visitors I would say you can safely skip this small place. It has a few prehistoric houses to give you a feel for how people lived in the distant past. Using your imagination will help you...More

Went there on Sunday, just a little visit before we go to another park. Some area in the park is still under renovation. If you like pre-history, the park is nice and good for walking also it can be an early education for children.

This Neolithic village (7000-1000 BC) is now located within the boundaries of Seoul, although it's around a $30 cab ride from Insadong Street. There are reconstructed houses (the 29 real ones were reburied after excavation), as well as a small 2 room museum housing artifacts...More

I enjoyed browsing the exhibits and housing sites. While the site overall as a tourist attraction is somewhat underwhelming, the history displayed here is important and is recognized as one of the key prehistoric sites in Korea. The artifacts and pit houses held the most...More
