Bank of Korea Money Museum information
Built in 1912, and an outstanding example of Japanese colonial architecture, the old Bank of Korea now houses a reasonably interesting exhibition on the history of local and foreign currency. There's plenty of interactive displays for kids, such as being able to press your own coin or test for counterfeit notes.
