There used to be a few handicraft sessions for tourists on Wednesdays and Thursdays. There were none open to 'tourists' during my last visit to Seoul. Sad.

Nice and spacious place. Some events on Korean culture. Small coffee shop where you can get some snack. It is not enough but they have some brochures on Jeju, Gyeongju and Busan. Good to visit before heading for country sides.
