Each parent is familiar with the situation with a difficult choice: how to spend the weekend with a child – what kind of entertainment to choose, so that it would be interesting both for the child and for the parent himself.
If you are faced with such a problem, then this article is for you!
We offer 3 interesting ideas for an interesting children’s weekend in Cheonan.
1. Cheonan Museum Interactive Children’s Expositions
One of the most famous museums in the city, the Cheonan Museum, is located near the 삼거리-park, more than 650,000 citizens and tourists visited it. The museum covers the history and culture of our city in different eras – from the prehistoric era to modern times.
The museum features many ancient exhibits of the dynasties of Mahan, Baekjae, Joseon. Also, there is a Modern room, where the visitors can see exhibiting relics dedicated to the life and activities of the Cheonan patriots.
But the main feature of this museum, in my opinion, is the focus on involving children in exploring the exhibits through various interactive games, tasks, puzzles. My little assistant Sasha and I went around all the exhibits and tried all the entertainment, and now we can say with confidence that it will not be boring!
So, at the beginning of the exposition, the child receives the Cheonan traveler’s game passport, in which it is necessary to affix stamps that are located throughout the museum.
Also around the exhibits are interactive games: puzzles, easels for drawing, cubes, the child is given the opportunity to learn about the history of his city and ancestors in an accessible game form.
The tasks are so interesting that they can interest even adults!
In addition, the Dada Children Experience Hall is located on the 1st floor of the museum, where you can take pictures of a child in a national Korean costume for free — hanbok against the backdrop of beautiful historical scenery, ride an improvised train and car of old times, watch cartoons about our city, play with your child traditional Korean games. Also in the museum are often held various children’s workshops and concerts.
The Cheonan Museum is a great find for parents who want to spend time with benefits for the child, and at the same time gain knowledge themselves. On the 2nd floor, there is a beautiful terrace overlooking the mountains, where you can take a memorable photo of the whole family.

If your children love animals as much as we do, then they will definitely like the raccoon cafe located three minutes walk from the Cheonan bus terminal.
The price of the visit is quite acceptable – 7,000 per person includes coffee or tea for the visitor (only cold drinks — for animal safety purposes), 2 hours in the cafe, and also dry food for raccoons).
In the cafe, there are not only raccoons of various kinds, but also dogs – from small to large breeds. The main feature of this cafe is the possibility of direct interaction with animals, who with pleasure love to contact visitors, give the opportunity to play with them and make cool joint photos.
It is worth noting that there are age restrictions: children are allowed to attend, starting from elementary school (students from 1 to 3 classes – only when accompanied by relatives), as small clashes sometimes occur between animals (raccoons and dogs), and to avoid fright from a small child should observe this restriction.
I would also recommend visiting a cafe in the morning or in the afternoon because in the evening animals need rest, and they are less willing to make contact.
Nevertheless, I consider The raccoon cafe a good option for spending a weekend with a child, where even an adult will be able to enjoy communicating with cute pets.

Since childhood, instill in children a love for a moving lifestyle and prefer active entertainment on weekends with children?
If you answered positively to these questions, then the next idea is to your liking! What about going rollerblading at the new «Roller land» in Cheonan?
The main feature of the club is its stylish, cozy atmosphere, and at the same time, a large enough space for roller skating.
I want to note that the price of a single visit, including rental of the rollers, is higher than the average price, for an adult — 12,000 won, for a child — 9,000 won, you can also take a monthly subscription for 110,000 won.
”Roller Land” positions itself not only as the roller skating space but also as the leisure complex with seats and its own mini-cafe (hot and cold drinks, various types of snacks are on the menu), if you want to visit the cafe without skating on rollers, the entrance fee will be 2000 won, and the seats around the roller skating platform will allow parents to comfortably watch the frolicking children enjoying a cup of aromatic coffee.
When rollerblading, children are given full protective gear. I was also pleased with the presence of a wide range of rollers, from the smallest ones for children, to truly large sizes. Even I, who always wore a shoe size of 265 mm, could find here a suitable pair of rollers.
As employees of the roller club assured us, there are no age restrictions, but I would recommend visiting children from 6 years old, since the skating rollers accelerated very quickly and, for the first time, they are difficult to control.
In general, “Roller land” is a great idea for an active family holiday in Cheonan!
