    Nice museum for free of charge. Why do museums always make you pay extra to see the mummy exhibits of Egypt? Used the museum's brochure to take note of the best items in each room. Rainy day activity

    Great collection of artifacts. It was hard to do it all at once, even without the special exhibit

    Floors are made of wood so if you wear heels, they make loud clip clopping sounds as you walk which might disturb other visitors. And it's REALLY loud, especially when everyone is being silent

    Loved the second and third floor of this museum. So big place, you can spend easily a day here.

    Huge, beautiful and modern museum. The special exhibit was less than $5 to get in and the rest of the museum is free. The only downside were loud, undisciplined children everywhere!

    The building is huge and architecture and space is beautiful.😃 The museum exhibits are ok.🤔 Very old school and traditional. Look and read mostly. Not much interactivity and multimedia. 😔

    A remarkable venue where viewers see and feel Korean history and culture for themselves. With a wide variety of exhibitions, other facilities and foreign-language information, access is easy for all.

    It's hugeeee! Unestimated how much time can spend there as well as the park and a Hanguel museum nearby too. 3rd floor is interesting especially the Korean Buddhas

    Get there via the Ichon Station (Seoul Subway Line 4 & Jungang Line), Exit 2. The subway is connected to the museum via an underpass called 박물관 나들길 or Moving Museum.

    Archeological museum of Korea. Free admission for the ordinary entrance. It is huge so leave home early if you want to master the museum. They have a nice park for family picnic outside the building.

    Actually the area around the museum is not fully closed during night time! So I definitely recommend to experience everything in darkness and enjoy romantic atmosphere.

    English language tours meet at the great hall entrance at 10:30 and 14:30. The highlights tour is a fantastic way to see some great pieces with context, without being overwhelmed.

    This place is HUGE. You can do it quick, but you can't take it all in if you do so. The Korean history is a major part of this museum, but they also have great traveling exhibits. Read more
