Gyeonggi Children's Museum

The Nature’s Playground is the perfect place for kids to play.Toddlers and children will feel warm and comfortable in a beautiful natural environment while they have fun taking part in various nature-themed exploration activities. Let’s talk about the seasonal changes in our natural world. How about planting some vegetable seeds in the vegetable garden or harvesting apples? Do you ever wonder about the conversations animals have? How about playing trains, wearing train clothes? What about creatures who live underground? You can even pretend to be a mole and explore mole tunnels. Do not miss our firefly experience inside a giant ginkgo tree at the Nature’s Playground. You can also discover a variety of cars parking on the way from the Nature’s Playground to the Healthy Playground. Shall we join the fire brigade and drive a fire engine? Don’t forget your fire suit! Wow, it even has a Dee-dah, Dee-dah siren! You can also enjoy lots more fun activities in buses, taxis and police cars.
(This playground is strongly recommended for visitors under 48 months of age only.)
