Beautiful old and small houses. Just take a slow stroll between the houses. Many tourists though. Since there are locals living there you have to be quiet to show respect for them. Unfortunately some people dont seem to understand that.

I love this place. I visited Bukchon Hanok Village right after GyeongBokGong in my rented hanbok. I felt a different vibe walking around in my hanbok. Should give it a try ( you wont be the only person walking in a hanbok).

We originally planned to visit this village around 2pm after our gyeongbokgong palace visit and ginseng chicken lunch. However, the scotching hot sun is really unbearable for us and we decided to visit here around 5pm. Houses are beautiful and built on inclined pavement. There...More

Nice to see but still missing to renovate some of the houses there and it will be perfect. Nice places to see and drink and eat. Very charming anyway. Nice pictures to do but recommend it on the night mainly. Thanks

Loved my visit to the Bukchon Hanok Village! This is the only place in Seoul which still has traditional korean hanoks around. It's amazing to see traditional houses right in the middle of the otherwise cosmopolitan city, almost like taking a time machine back to...More

If you never been to a traditional Korean "village" this is a place for you! The village is not far, and when you walk in you feel this is very different from the city - you can see the old architecture, building, culture. If you...More

Strolling through the neighborhood on a Sunday, when lots of Koreans are in traditional dress, is fun. But having informaiton about what to see, provided by the Visitor Center, would make the visit even better. So don't plan to go on Sunday!

Good for a quick visit and to see genuine hanok houses that people still live in. Close to palaces so can wander through the village on the way to or from them.

Samcheongdong / Bukchon
This historic neighbourhood was traditionally home to
Seoul’s middle and upper-classes. Now it’s most famed
for its clusters of beautiful, traditional Korean
homes (called hanok), many of which are found in
Bukchon. Many of these homes have now been converted
into restaurants, cafes, shops, and even guesthouses,
and their unique architecture offers a look at Korea’s
traditional beauty. Samcheongdong’s main and side

I don't know there is a museum. But the whole area is good enough for you to spend a few hours there.
