Heart and Seoul: Growing Up in Korea

image-Heart and Seoul

Heart and Seoul: Growing Up in Korea is a new, cultural exhibit In which five modern-day Korean kids will open their hearts and invite you to take an intimate look into their lives through their diverse interests, customs and ambitions.

The exhibit will use traditional folktales as well as current day personal stories told by Korean children to engage visitors in learning about time-honored cultural values and life in South Korea’s highly urbanized and technologically-advanced.

Children and visitors will be able to explore gallery areas that recreate the settings that characterize the lives of typical South Korean children in Seoul, such as an apartment, classroom, taekwondo studio, and K-pop stage. Throughout the exhibit, these spaces will be embedded with traditional folktales and games to show how values like respect for parents and elders; the importance of scholarship; loyalty to family, friends and community; and hospitality are still an integral facet of 21st century Korean life.

A Stepping Stones visitor favorite returns! Shop for foods in the market and brush a giant mouth, while new activities allow children to explore even more about fitness and nutrition. Study circulation and digestion, learn about go/slow/whoa foods, play food detective, get an up-close look at a giant nose, row a boat in tandem with a skeleton and create a warm up and cool down routine.

Children and adults will have hands-on opportunities to explore topics in ways that help them understand their bodies, understand the importance of making healthy choices and apply concepts in everyday situations. Eat smart, move more, live well!

Healthyville® was created by Stepping Stones Museum for Children as a part of its Healthy Children, Healthy Communities® initiative.
