  • 062-613-5337 is closed every day 09:00-18:00 Monday (January 1, the day after the public holidays) there is no admission fee. Picnic Area Gwangju Folk Museum relaxation was a good place to stay. It was a place where we collected and exhibited the disappearing folk materials. Opened in 1987. It was really a place on the theme of shelter, to break up the Earl of our ancestors and to inform the descendants of our culture. I thought it would be nice to use the children's experience as a free admission.

  • Huge Place and worth the visit if you pass by Gwangju! Take the day to know the whole museum, because it has the building with several galleries, including free guides and volunteers that explain all art and history, in the external area I found no guide, but it is all very well informed and identified, it is very worth the Visit! The photos I will upload later because I used the camera to register.

  • The building needs some update as it does not have a lift to go upstairs. They provide wheelchairs and prams for your convenience. I used a pram provided with my ID card submittion. Please do not forget to take your ID back when you return. They also provide a locker to put your stuff in when inserting 100 won coin which is returnable. I love hospitality from staff. It was good enough to show my daughter about Korean folk tradition.
  • Interesting and informative and well layed out
