  • Beautiful collection with some amazing artifacts. A little challenging to navigate in English but the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. There are free tours at a couple times through the day which I would definitely recommend as the collections can get daunting if you’re going to try to explore them on your own. Really fun to just take it all in with a guide.
  • I personally did not find this museum all that interesting although everything was nicely displayed. I formation desk says it takes about an hour to go through and it is free all day every day. Free small lockers available inside by the information desk. Probably interesting if you are really into Korean culture....
  • Such a beautiful display of historical and traditional Korean lifestyle. Amazed to see the combination of audio-video broadcasting technologies to present the folklore aesthetically. Totally awesome!
  • This museum is absolutely the best place to learn about Korean traditional culture free of charge. It took me almost two hours to go through all the exhibition! Every tourist visiting Seoul must visit here. I was impressed how ingenious their presentation was.
  • A good, well laid out museum, giving an insight into historic Korea as well as information on their culture.
