  • It is very easy to find an old age than other museums, and there are places to see nearby and Jinagamyeonseo.

  • The museum is a must-go tour of the museum enthusiast. It's hard to see a museum where you can travel anywhere in the country, and you can even go on a race for this museum, and it's good quality and manageable.

  • 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!
