About the event
The Mok In Museum is a very quirky museum at the base of Inwangsan. It has a beautiful, huge outdoor area, right up against Inwangsan mountain, and lots of places to sit and enjoy nature. Six exhibition halls offer visitors a look at wooden figures from around the world. Mokin refers to traditional wooden sculptures carved in shapes of human figures or various animals. The museum holds around 12,000 wooden folk sculptures including those used to decorate funeral carriages and temples mostly from the Joseon dynasty up to modern times. Entry fee is KW10,000 and includes a drink, which we can enjoy in any of the many resting areas on the grounds.
Meet Gyeongbukdong Station (Line 3), Exit 3.1 and take a local bus to Buam Dong. From there it is a steep 15-20 minute walk up the hill to the museum entrance. Wear comfortable shoes.
For anyone who is interested, we can then head to the Michelin starred Jaha Sonmandu Dumpling Place in Buamdong. They do not take reservations. Or there are other dining alternatives. We can decide closer to the time and depending on the size of our group.
