The Children’s Gallery, located in Seoul’s ‘Northern-Seoul Dream Forest,’ was originally an art museum that underwent renovation in 2009 and converted into a gallery for kids to learn and enjoy.Located inside the park’s natural surroundings, children can experience the outdoors while nurturing their imagination and developing an appreciation for the arts. The two-story building has a unique design and an interior with floral accents, cartoon characters, and nature-inspired staircases to intrigue the minds of young guests. The second floor terrace holds a variety of unique, interactive exhibitions for children to learn beyond the classroom. A recent ‘rainfall’ theme had children wear raincoats and umbrellas underneath a man-made drizzle as part of the enjoyment.
The museum also has a lounge, nursing room and other accommodations for family visitors. In addition, the facility was built with Eco-friendly materials throughout and the health and safety of youngsters in mind. In partnership with the Dream Forest Art Center, the gallery provides other cultural activities and events including music concerts and childrens’ plays.
