Nice enough museum. It's free and you don't need an awful lot of time to get through and it has a neat little shop as well.

The whole experience was amazing. One of the nicest history museums I've ever been to. You can just tell the amount of investment that went into this. Can hands down recommend to anybody. Would go as far as call this a must do when in Seoul. It's right next to the palace anyhow.
I have always been a fan of Asian buildings and designs. I have always found those beautiful and interesting. This place made me so happy. It lived up to my expectations. The pagoda is amazing. I walked around it for a while being amazed. I loved learning more about Korean culture. This place was a treat for me. They also have the animal statues and since I am a boar, I had to get a picture with it. All of the animal statues were well made.
