Although located very near to Incheon International Airport, it can take a while to get to the Sculpture park / Full House. You need to get to Sammok Dock Ferry Terminal (삼목선착장) and take the ferry to Shindo Island. The ferry journey is about 10 minutes.
There are many ways to get to Sammok Dock. The easiest way is to get the train to Unseo Station (Arex Line) and head across the street to Lotte Mart. From there take bus 201 to Sammok Dock Ferry Terminal, the last stop. Then take the ferry heading to Shindo Island. The ferry departs every 10 minutes from 07:00 am – 18:10 pm and costs 3,000 won (free to get to Shindo Island and pay on the return journey). Outside Shindo Island ferry terminal there will be a bus that takes you to Mado Sculpture Park (last stop) / Full house.
