Namsangol Hanok Village in Seoul

In order to gain a glimpse into the lives of traditional Korean, five houses were moved here or rebuilt to create Namsangol Hanok Village.

The houses represent houses from different social classes, ranking from peasants to the king. The houses display various types of furniture and household goods that would have been found in the Joseon Dynasty.

After you enter through the main gate you will find a very nice view of Cheonu-gak building to the left and Seoul Tower and mountains in the background.

Also at Hanok village you can find a pond, a time capsule, pavillion, Namsangol traditional garden and many areas to relax or have a picnic.

Opening hours:
April – October 09:00 – 21:00
November – March 09:00 – 20:00

How to get to Namsangol Hanok Village:
Take subway line 3 or 4 to Chungmuro Station. Leave exit 3 or 4 and Hanok Village will be right in front of you.

  1. Judging from the looks of the roof tiles (are they filled with concrete?) they would be very stabil. Better than our silly roofs which get blown off every time we have tornadoes.
