    I have been to many museums in Seoul now and this is a good one. Not very big but still good. And in a very good location next to the most popular place in town and less then 10 minutes walk from the ...  more »

    I went on a weekday in April on a sunny. Because the schedule was not sure I'd seen films and concentrated on the basement and first floor main hotel, if you have time, have missed. They crowded on the day number of guards and many cares, can't. Exhibits are rich in variety, but many films especially, there is takes time. Whats the cutlets in the restaurant because it was free (but a feature film) is usually helpful.

    The Museum offers many different pieces and is for the admission price of 4000 won OK. Definitely worth a visit, even to the next Museum is located almost opposite.

Where to stay in Seoul

The Seoul metropolitan area has two districts especially appealing to backpackers--Jongno just northeast of the city, and Hongdae to the west. Both offer good shopping and dining, as well as easy transport links to the rest of the city. Mid-range options may prove difficult to find in peak season (July to August), unless you don't mind staying at a traditional hanok guesthouse, where loads of character make up for any lack of amenities. Finally, a range of top-end hotels with an impressive list of services and facilities lie scattered around the city.
