I went to visit the museum with my five-year-old son. The museum has both in-door and out-door exhibition. The in-door displays and exhibitions are very impressive, packed with rock and mineral specimens that tell a lot of story. There are also sections for kids to put their hands on and explore about rocks and minerals, without having to worry about all the equipment because they have them all installed. Kids love them! The displays and exhibitions are very comprehensive, in Korean with some English. It would be nice if you know Korean or have your Korean friend(s) come along. The out door rock garden is even more spectacular if you know some geology. I enjoyed walking from one rock to another seeing fabulous geological features displayed on the rock surfaces. One can also walk through the 4.6-billion-year geological time path and learning about history of the world at the same time. This geological museum is definitely a must-see for all visitors.

Full size T-Rex skeleton along with many other dinosaurs for viewing. Many types of rocks, geodes and crystal examples. There are two small video theatres but all in Korean. This museum had wonderful English signs for all the exhibits. Outside there are large examples of different rocks along with a very large petrified tree log. A nice visit for maybe an hour or so.

Entrance is free.

This museum has geological samples including fossils and minerals as well as dinosaurs. It has displays on earthquakes and on evolution. The presentations are very well put together. If you have time, take a walk along the adjacent path by the Tandong Stream (recent project to clean the area), it is beautiful. When we visited on a Sunday there were many families with children of all ages enjoying it. The museum is closed on Mondays; open 10 am - 5 pm on Tues. - Sat. Entrance is free.
