  • The building needs some update as it does not have a lift to go upstairs. They provide wheelchairs and prams for your convenience. I used a pram provided with my ID card submittion. Please do not forget to take your ID back when you return. They also provide a locker to put your stuff in when inserting 100 won coin which is returnable. I love hospitality from staff. It was good enough to show my daughter about Korean folk tradition.
  • The exhibits feature quite a bit of Korean history, but are a bit heavy on mannequin dioramas. It is free, and the park around the museum offers an interesting stroll.
  • Nice museum. I recommend it if you want to learn more korean culture
  • The Museum is very interesting and free. You learn a lot on the country life of the time. Many stagings with models and music. There are also very large objects such as life-size fishing boats. Weather you can also take advantage of the beautiful park surrounding the Museum.
