The Seoul Baekje Museum, openly welcoming Dano, holds events where people can enjoy various cultural experiences and games.
Although Dano is June 7, or May 5 on the lunar calendar, the events will be held from 10 am to 6 pm on June 8 to enable family visitors to have some fun. The events will take place at the square and the lobby of the Seoul Baekje Museum and anyone can participate for free.
At the Experience Zone, people can watch the demonstration of washing hair with water infused with sweet flag, which is one of the representative customs of Dano, and they can learn to do it themselves. Also, they can participate in rubbing of beautiful patterns on the stone surface unique to Baekju, woodblock printing, drinking cold traditional tea, and learning how to play the reed pipe.
At the Game Zone, family visitors can enjoy traditional games, such as kicking a giant jegi, ssangnyuk, and shooting arrows, with their children.
