  • There is no Explanation of Japanese, so it's a lasting feeling to watch. Especially, I think that there was not an eyeball in particular. Because it is wide, it takes time to walk.

  • 90% of everything is translated into multiple languages (including English). I've lived in Korea for a long time and didn't know how much i didn't know about how everything came to be. Very informative and enjoyable museum of Korean history.
  • Very interesting. Been on 2 occasions. They maintain exhibitions well and change them frequently too. Entrance was free both times!
