Small ecological exhibition:
I made the audience listen to their voices.
In the visitors’ survey in 2015, we wanted to see nature and ecology as exhibits. We show a small exhibition with the theme of nature observation with the wind of the visitor.
The name of the flower that flies through the roadside sidewalk block, the butterfly that flies and flies between flowers, and the bird that wakes up in the morning. Take a closer look at the nature that has passed by you. The more you see, the more you know, the more surprising the world is hidden. Let’s go into the world of natural ecology together?

Nature Playground:
It is space for infants. Young children experience the warmth and comfort of nature while experiencing various exploration activities in the theme of nature, and experience various stimuli suitable for development.
Talk about how nature changes with the changing seasons. I plant vegetables in my garden, and I want to eat apples. What are the animals talking about? I can train and play train. What living creatures are living underground? Explore the mole cave by becoming a mole. Do not miss the beautiful fireflies in the huge ginkgo trees of the nature playground.
There are also a variety of cars on the way from the nature playground to the sturdy playground. Would you like to be a firefighter and drive a fire truck? Wearing firearms is essential! Aya ~ Sirens are back. Taxis and police cars also have a lot of fun activities.

Rugged playground:
At Rugged playground, we will learn the principles of exercise science and think about how to keep our body healthy.
Where will the ball I shoot up? Move the huge flowers in the sky. Turn the bicycle pedals vigorously and the huge flowers will return. Breathe deeply, take courage and challenge the rock wall. We will have a stronger body and mind while experiencing exhibits at the rugged playground.

Baby nest:
Where baby birds and mother birds are enjoying and relaxing, come to play with baby nests!
Baby Nest is a playground for infants less than 36 months old.
You can play with your mom and dad on the nest in warm forest where the baby bird lives.

Elementary school:
Children, are you ready for elementary school? I’ll take the backpack and go over the crosswalk to the classroom. Teacher, experience the elementary life that flourishes with friends.
The exhibition was designed to help preschoolers to eliminate the fear of elementary school and to have positive perceptions. It is an exhibition and education program that allows students to experience elementary life in a first grade classroom built in a children’s museum, just like 7 years old children actually enrolled in school.

Han River and Water:
We will look at the nature and history of the Han River, and learn about water science principles through water play.
For a long time people have lived together around the Han River. Find out how people around the Han River used the Han River. Let’s move the water by the pump, and move the ship and the spinner by the water. Move along the Han River waterway and play fishing. Why do not you take a nice yacht and go sailing into the West Sea and the Han River, are you ready?

How is our body?
In our body, we learn what the body does, such as heart, eyes, ears and nose. I also think about how to eat well, play well and sleep well and make the right choices for my own health.

Construction workshop:
Think about the diversity of buildings while comparing the materials and shapes of different buildings.
Imagine a variety of buildings ranging from traditional Korean houses to Greek temples and modern architecture, and imagine how to build my own house. How about a tree or a brick? How can I build a strong and beautiful house? After exploring a variety of materials, plan and create your own unique building in this world.

Eco Atelier:
It is a space where all of you can become an artist.
I use my various recyclables to make my own special works.
Waste wallpaper, scrap rubber, electric wire, iron last magazine, empty cans. Crap? In Echo Atelier, these are all very good ingredients for a unique work of art. What do we do with these various materials? Become an artist and let us recycle your recycled items into new and wonderful works of art.

Find a Fairy Tale Water:
It is a space made up of scenes often appearing in fairy tales. – In each scene, try to experience the story as a protagonist of the story and find out the treasure-like lessons that the fairy tale tells us.
Do you know the story of Big Dipper? In the house of the moon’s sister, you can watch animated fairy tales related to constellations. Go into the tiger ‘s mouth. How did the protagonists in the fairy tale that faced the tiger get through the crisis?

Introduce my friend:
There are many friends of various cultures in Gyeonggi Province.
The world friends are composed of stories of Gyeonggi-do’s multicultural friends.
Through the stories of friends with diverse cultural backgrounds, they learn about their mother and father’s country and learn about culture. There is a resemblance to ours and another. Meet our neighbors who live together in two cultures.
Let’s try the Chinese traditional clothes cheongpao? Why do not you learn to dance like a hat with a Vietnamese hat? Feel the Indonesian culture while playing Indonesian instruments. At the village playground, you can experience the play of various countries.

A weird exhibition room:
The strange exhibition room is a new concept art experience space that experiences lyrical and creative visual art based on new media technology.
We run a “colorful jungle” at the media exhibition to remind children of the importance of environment and life with endangered animals.

Art museum
Discover another museum hidden in a museum.
Keep an eye on the various colored tiles at the entrance of the museum. It is the first work, the murals of Mr. Kang Ik-Jung. Hangul creates a letter by connecting consonants and vowels. It is the character of balance and harmony through connection. His work “Mixing with the Wind and Connecting to the Earth” shows that the present, the future, and the past are connected and that Gyeonggi Province and the world are connected. Kang Ik-jung believed that children exist in the present, show the future and connect the past.
Let’s read the letters of the tiles. From the commotion to the present, the children gathered together the phrases of the commotion that they liked and made them into sentences with stories.
