  • Free entry alongside the Gyeongbokgung Palace. Lots of exhibits and things to look at, such as traditional houses and scrolls, and the list goes on! Free water fountains and just amazing to visit.
  • Extensive displays and well laid out. It's also located near many other attractions, do perfect to be part of a day trip in downtown Seoul.
  • Olden days korea life style is there... Very interesting..
  • It's a small museum, but it's a nice look into the traditional way of life in Korea. Be sure to stop by after your tour of Gyeongbokgung Palace.
  • Only took a quick glance but the exhibitions gave me a good overview of Korea. Well worth the visit. Free entry with the temple ticket.
