jupil spider museum

Destination: Jupil Spider Museum (Namyangju, Gyeonggi-do)

Arachnophobics and kids, look away now – the spiders are crawling and the statues have breasts.

Claiming to be the only spider museum in the world, the Jupil Spider Museum (주필거미박물관) in Namyangju features a lot more than just spiders. First started in May 2004, the spider museum is a small part of the larger Arachnopia Eco Forest. The name Jupil comes from the name of the founder, Dr. Kim Ju-pil, a Dongguk University professor apparently fascinated by the crawly animals.
