  • It is a must visit if you love art and history. The place itself is very photogenic. Loved the permanent museum installations. A lot of displays about Korean history and culture. Loved it so much.
  • It's free for everyone. However, it doesn't mean the quality is low. Basically, it is a national traditional museum which means all the contents are certified by the government. You can enjoy many different types of Korean traditional objects.
