  • It is a must visit if you love art and history. The place itself is very photogenic. Loved the permanent museum installations. A lot of displays about Korean history and culture. Loved it so much.
  • I loved this museum. It had a lot of very informative and cool exhibits. It also wasn't an overwhelming amount of content. I also love that they offer free admissions to the public. I'd highly suggest a stop.
