Absolutely amazing museum that's completely FREE! Beautiful architecture and the design of the building and the pond in front is stunning. The museum contains a comprehensive historical account of Korea and also contains some international influenced exhibits/galleries of the neighboring countries/areas. The impressive digital 360 degree projection exhibit is a highlight that transforms the room that you're in and takes you to another dimension.
This is an absolutely massive world class museum. Everybody that's visiting Seoul should put time aside to come visit this place. Ichon subway station gets you inside from the station directly. Best part about this museum is that it's FREE, except the special seasonal exhibits. It's also indoors with nice AC, so an ideal place for families during Seoul's crazy hot summer days. At 8 pm they have a really nice free light show at the pagoda. Highly recommend this place, you won't be disappointed.
