As beautiful as it's educational. Everything is written in various languages, so no worries if you can't speak Korean! Make sure you know what you can and can't bring in. I had totally forgotten that my keychain is a Swiss army knife. They have lockers, but when the museum is packed it's pretty hard to find one.

It's a beautiful place and a wonderful history presented. unfortunate due to construction a lot not visible. but just the clock they have hanging already worth going. Just get some who can translate for you the Korean as the English translation is not correct ;)

The National Museum in Korea is a great place to hang out and learn about Korean history and culture. It offers a great escape from the weather and its FREE!!! Your visit can take 2-4 hours depending on how much you stop and read. Great English translations help foreigners enjoy the experience. Things to know: they only allow a limited # inside due to COVID. During off peak times, there is no wait, but there may be a queue doing tourist season. Trying making ticket reservations early, you may have better luck than me navigating the website. Small cafe with drinks and snacks are located on the bottom floor next to the big gift shop. Wear good shoes.

This comprehensive museum is massive and well organized. I really appreciated the replicas of certain pieces that persons who are blind or low vision and feel and "see". Thoughtfully arranged and maintained museum, which may need two visits to take in.
