Located in Gangnam, Seoul, the Figure Museum W is a new concept museum that merges figurines, toys, and a theme park all into one. It is a must see for any fans of action figures because you get a chance to view highly-prices limited edition figures in cutting-edge exhibitions. The exhibits range from the legendary figures of Maginger Z, Gundams, and Robot Taekwon V, all the way to familiar contemporary heroes including Superman, Batman, and Iron Man. Many Korean Hallyu stars, including D.O of EXO, Lee Jong Seok, Lee Wang Soo, Ko So-Young and Lim Si Wan, have visited and shown great interest in the collection. It's a great place for all ages to gain knowledge about the art and culture of action figures. If you're sad to leave the figures and toys behind at the end of your visit, consult the museum's figure experts and purchase action figures to start your own collection at home!
Embark on a visual journey through artworks from the likes of Gogh, Manet and Picasso. Feed a giraffe or box with a kangaroo, rock climb hundreds of feet or ride a runaway mine train! At Alive Museum you can step in to become the subject of the paintings and take hilarious, mind-bending photos! These classic paintings are transformed into multi-dimensional optical illusions using a range of perspective techniques and mirror effects. The building also houses Seoul's newest indoor attraction: Dynamic Maze. Band together with a group of friends to work out clues, decode puzzles, and take on a range of easy and difficult challenges in order to break free of the maze! Buy each attraction individually or try out both with the combo ticket.
Start your morning of Korean culture with a tour of Seoul's largest (and arguably most beautiful) palace. Gyeongbokgung Palace, built in the 1300s, has been destroyed and reconstructed many times, but you'll be relieved it's still here today for you to stroll the spacious grounds, intricate architecture and grand pavilions. Combine this with a guided visit of the National Folk Museum and your knowledge of Korean history will be fit to burst! Along the way, your informative tour guide will relate facts about areas of interest, particularly related to the distinguished Joseon Dynasty. Realize the deep significance of Buddhism in Korean culture at Jogyesa Temple, a tranquil refuge from the megacity outside and the leading center of Zen Buddhism in Korea.
The 63 Building, also known as the Hanhwa 63 City, is a skyscraper on Yeouido island boasting stunning views of the Han River and the city of Seoul. Opened in July 1985, the building is the tallest gold-clad structure in the world and a must-see landmark in South Korea. The 63 Building stands tall at 817ft and comprises 60 floors and 3 basement levels – offering plenty of space to explore and amazing scenery down below to admire. However, the building is much more than an observation tower. It's a multi-venue leisure complex containing every form of entertainment imaginable. Inside, you will find an IMAX cinema, art gallery, wax museum, performance hall and even an aquarium.
This full day tour has a choc-a-block itinerary, designed to give you a total Seoul immersion. Marvel at the architecture of one of Seoul's most beautiful palaces, Gyeongbokgung. Resulting from a stormy history, ongoing reconstructions mean you can see original portions alongside modern efforts to restore it to its former glory. Reminisce to bygone days with a guided visit of the National Folk Museum before a tasty local lunch. After you're fully sated, you'll set off to visit palace no.2, UNESCO-listed Changdeokgung, a perfectly preserved architectural example from the Joseon Dynasty. Walk along the serene Jogyesa Buddhist Temple and peruse crafts and antiques at Insadong Street. End the tour with a convenient drop off back at your hotel.
You'll soon be imagining yourself in the days of yore with a tour of Seoul's cultural heritage, from the palaces of royalty to the ancient homes of ordinary people. Choose between two immersive tours and begin either tour with the beautiful pavilions and spacious grounds of Gyeongbokgung Palace. Then, your informative guide will lead you on a guided tour of the National Folk Museum to find out about the daily lives of Koreans spanning pre-historic times to the end of the Joseon Dynasty. Explore the peaceful grounds of Jogyesa Buddhist Temple before settling down for a traditional Korean meal. After lunch you can either experience a Joseon Dynasty throwback when you visit the Korean Folk Village, or see Seoul from a more modern perspective when you visit Insadong and the N Seoul Tower for a panoramic view of the city before heading to a classic Hanok VIllage. Walk amongst traditionally built houses, watch artisans in action at a handicraft workshop, join the audience of a folk performance, and even try your hand at traditional games such as arrow throwing and seesaw jumping!
I think this was the most memorable thing I did in Seoul. Wearing Hanboks and going to Gyeongbokgung Palace made me feel like I was in a drama. This place was amazing while choosing from so many different styles of hanboks. The people that worked there made us feel so comfortable and were so nice. You can even ask for accessories or get your hair braided. We even got a free photoshoot and picture that brought to us so nicely. Really recommend.
Youn from Klook Seoul had did a great job. Throughout the excursion, you will definitely find her having good sense of humor, well organized and able to explain historical and cultural background of the sights. She would be able to get moving right away from huge crowd and display friendly attitude all the time. No regret at all to join this excursion. 😊
They reached in time at our hotel lobby and must said that our friendly and very detailed tour guide Tina, she is superb 👍... She explained very details of the ancient capital of the Joseon Dynasty while we toured around Gyeongbokgung Palace n Changdeok Palace...

N our last stop was Namdaemun Market which is a highly remommended place to visit if you are in Seoul... U can looked for economically priced clothing and shoes n this place so fascinating 😉
The 63 building is very cool and impressive! It has a great view of Seoul and was beautiful at sunset. It also has a great elevator on the side of the building that gives you a view going up and down. The 63 art gallery at the top was also great—there was an animal friends art exhibit there. The process of getting the Klook voucher was super easy.
My family and I enjoyed this activity. It was something that is for all ages. I especially loved how interactive the games and how accommodating the staff are. The place and its equipment are also very clean and sanitized. I highly recommend this for everyone who wants to try a new activity when in Seoul. 👍
the building is very posh
i wasnt able to ride the shuttle but it was fault that i decided to walk all the way from the station to the building. wouldve been okay if it wasnt raining. but the plus point is that it was raining so not a lot of people and i got the elevator ride all to myself both going up and going down. it was fun. very nice view of Seoul. worth the price.
