Cheongju Land is a project and facility complex specially designed to educate children through exciting and interactive means.
While on our way to Cheongju National Museum, the eye-catching domes that caught me from my taxi window. I realized that there is something on that side that needs investigation.
Fortunately, it is located just about a hundred meters from the Museum, just a couple of minutes after passing by it.
I decided not to visit Cheongju Land that day as I didn't have enough time to investigate the facilities--knowing that it is bigger and needed at least a couple of hours to explore.
For the sake of completing this introduction to Cheongju Land, after I visited the Cheongju City's national Museum, I headed to search my hotel and decided that I visit Cheongju Land the following day, which I did.
Now, let me continue with my original topic...
The dome I was talking about above, was actually the building called Kids Experience Center. I guess that it was the latest addition to the structures built in the facility.
It seems that the Kids Experience Center is one that attracts the most visitors, especially children, every year. According to Cheongju Land's website, the number of visitors has doubled. By the thousands, every year since the facility was opened.
Most visiting children are from primary levels, such as kindergarten and elementary children. It seems that visiting Cheongju Land is part of their curriculum.
Children visit the facility with their teachers who teach various subjects, including science, English, among others.
Cheongju Land has been exerting efforts to establish various experiential facilities for its expected guests. The main facilities include...
Another facility that is typically attractive to children (and to adults like me ^^) is the zoo. Everybody loves animals. Definitely, children love zoos. However, not all adults love zoos due to some ethical and conservation issues!
The zoo is too apparent as you can already spot it in the distance. You can see the long neck and head of the Stegosaurus sticking out from among the structures in the area. No problem in finding the place! It is also where, nearby, you can get off from a bus or taxi.
The dedicated authority is trying to improve the facilities and projects by adding more extensions and facilities, including the observation deck at the zoo area.
It also remodeled the education centers, bear houses, and has installed the geothermal heat air conditioning and heating facilities.
Also, Cheongju Land has plans and implemented more experiential facilities and activities, including...
Cheongju Land administration has been working hard to improve the facilities further and make it more relevant and educational to all visitors, including children, and for adults as well.
It was snowing when I visited the place, and it seemed that not all facilities were opened. It was the beginning of Coronavirus spread.
Just like the small children, I thought I still have the child-like excitement to see animals. But unfortunately, I couldn't go because it was close at that time. Next time!
However, I love my visit to one of its centers--The Climate Change Center. I got very interested to see and explore the facility. I was feeling encouraged to work harder for climate change issues and didn't think that Cheongju would establish such an information center.
I would say that the Climate Change Center has great presentations, descriptions, examples, and advice on how people should behave and do to lessen the global problem of the effects of climate change.
The Center presented the issues very well, and it was also exciting and convincing. There is so much to see when you visit the place. Besides, it is like shooting two to three birds with one stone...
You can explore Cheongju National Museum (really worth visiting) and Sangdang Mountain Fortress from Cheongju Land (also a must-visit historical site).

You can get to the facility either by bus or taxi from Cheongju City. By taxi, simply tell the driver to bring you to the place as they know it quite well.
Take a bus from Bungmunno2(i)-ga to Munha-dong with number 862-2. This bus stops around Cheongju Land and also goes to Sangdang Mountain Fortress. Travel time is around 30 minutes from the city center.
I did walk from Cheongju National Museum (a few meters from Cheongju Land) to my hotel. It took me about two hours. I did it because I wanted to see more about the area. And it was my purpose of coming to Cheongju City. It was a great experience. I saw lots of things around.
Now, if you are thinking of visiting Cheongju City, I can assure you that visiting Cheongju Land (maybe except this one if you're not interested), Cheongju National Museum, and Sangdang Mountain Fortress is worth your time and resources.
It's worth keeping in your life's memory.
Thanks, and enjoy your travels.
