Great way to spend a couple of hours on a hot afternoon. Free as well and very easy to get to. It is a shame half of it was closed for renovation when we were there.

A great place to learn about history of Korea. The layout of museum is very well organized. However, staff need to be more conversant in English.

Good exhibits about the history of Seoul. It is free unlike museums in Europe and they dont pressure you to make a donation. Worth a visit to understand more about Seoul. Spent about 2 hours here. Well worth the time.
