Must go. If you like visiting museums, this could be the only one you need to go in Seoul. However, due to its size, it will take the whole day to visit all 3 floors of exhibitions. It is a very nice and very organized museum that’s free for all. Amazing!!!


I recently had the pleasure of visiting the National Museum of Korea, and I must say it was an incredible experience. The museum is a treasure trove of history and culture, and it offers a wide range of exhibits that cater to various interests.

Come for the history, stay for the flowers! It's a huge place, three floors with cafes and food court. Gift shop is cool too. They have immersive digital exhibitions and multi language tours. Not to mention helpful robots gliding about.
