National Museum of Korea Reviews
get to. Thank you Absolutely fantastic museum. English guide excellent, extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. His enthusiasm for his job shines. Spent nearly all day there. Very easy to
One of the highlights of my trip the museum is three floors of history and art. If you are interested in Korean culture, history, art, and Buddhist art then this is a must visit. I could have spent much longer there but unfortunately time did not permit doing so. It was free when we visited, I don't know if that was because of a special event or not but that was a plus. All of the exibits featured English and Korean so no need to worry about that. Great visit overall and I will certainly be returning the next time I am in Seoul.
