I had non-Korean friends in college who loved kimchi so much that they ate it straight out of the jar without rice. Whether you are like my college friends or you are someone interested in learning about why people are love kimchi so much, the Museum Kimchikan is a place you can turn to for all you need to know about kimchi. Originally opened as the Kimchi Museum in Pil-dong, it was deemed by CNN as one of the 11 top food museums in the world this past March and reopened as the Museum Kimchikan this past April. Here, you can learn about the history and diversity of kimchi or reserve classes to make some kimchi yourself. Make sure to take advantage of the free audio guides that are available in English, Chinese and Japanese. It might be a little too much kimchi for ya, but where else in the world can you say you’ve been to a kimchi museum?
