Everything about it is beautiful since the moment you step in. It has gorgeous gardens and a beautiful pagoda near the lake. The admission is free for their permanent exhibitions and you need to pay for the visiting ones.
Super museum about the history of the Korean peninsula. Be aware that it is huge and you can easily spend the whole day there. Best part is, it is 100% for free!
Very nice museum with lots of priceless pieces of art. Mostly Asian origin. Bit far out of central Seoul (explains the missing star)
Building is impressive and sets high expectations but reality was found the museum was quite dull and full of kids going around finally enjoying some off time from school with their classes. It's OK to visit but can't really recommend, if pressed for time I would skip this museum and visit some of the beautiful palaces or enjoy some contemporary Korean culture in the city.
Beautiful and huge museum. Wonderful surrounding grounds too!
