Jeongok Prehistory Museum

For the past couple of weeks, I've been really trying to get all caught up to date in my postings, and it seems impossible!!! We keep busy! hehehe... We went to the Prehistory Museum, then we finally made it to Namsan Seoul Tower, then we went to Shanghai, then I went with Hyeah to a kids role playing park and we took S.' cousins to Everland....

We've also been looking for an apt. This was one of the hardest, but I'm happy to announce we finally found one and will be moving at the end of the month! So exited to move to a new neighborhood!!! AND.... the very bestest part.... wait for it....... it has a patio!!!!!! You don't even know how happy this makes me!!!! A patio, in an apt. in the City... #unheardof!!!!  Ahhh.... to finally be able to hang my "hamaca"! : )

Back to this post...


The Jeongok Prehistory Museum, is in Jeongok-ri, Jeongok-eup, Yeoncheon-gun, Gyeonggi Province.... To remember these names... Impossible!



It's located on the oldest and largest Paleolithic site in Korea.  


The modern building rested on top of two mountains forming a connection between them. To me it looked like a giant metal snake... pretty cool...


The Misty path... ; )


On the left side, the entrance...on the right, the exit...


Inside, we felt as if we boarded some sort of spaceship. 




I've never been a big fan of museums myself, but my little guy seems to love them. Any time we go to one, he seem to be super into it and wants to know everything about everything.



It showcased the evolution of man along the Hantan River. 


Yo con guille de fotografa...  : P 




Flowers & farms always look pretty to me... 


& we did some bug hunting...



& stone hopping...


& the fire... hummmm.... we need to work on this one... : )


& we did some excavating... 


& we headed back to the main building to get some refreshments... 


Pretty view... including the boy! : ) ♥


Olivia was there too... : )


On our way out, we stopped to take a look at the river...


& I saw a pile of rocks that reminded me of a picture I took, the first time we went to Switzerland.. 


An oldie, but a goodie! Aldelboden, Switzerland 2008... Good memories...
  We miss you Mimi!!! : (


I went down by myself, to see if it would be worth for all of us to get of the car and walk down to the river. It was a no-go... It was all rocks and when I looked down, while I was taking this picture, I saw something moving really fast by me... a snake... maybe... The monkey skills I developed while growing up in Guayabotas, came in handy... I've never walked over stones faster than this day! 

Since we didn't do any research on it, we had expected to see dinosaurs and made the mistake of telling Markus... there was none... We told him we would get him one at the museum shop, but there was no shop either... : (
Luckily, on our drive home, we found a roadside toy store that had one! 


We ❤ a happy kid! 

Even though I felt there was too little to see at the museum, the surroundings compensated for it. It's a great place to let your little ones run around, while us parents take in the pretty views and the fresh air.
