I went on a Saturday morning around 11 am so I could see the change of the guard act. It is ok but nothing that you will feel disappointed if you miss it.
The palace is huge and interesting. Some of the pavilions were closed for repairing.
There were a lot of tourists and some of them hired Korean traditional customs. Be ready to have lots of girls dressed up in Korean traditional dresses spending ages in different parts of the palace taking pictures. They are an absolute nightmare. They take and retake pictures and selfies for hours.
I felt that there should be some information about the different buildings and their function.

Lovely palace, and best appreciated if you join the free tour. You can also rent a hanbok in nearby shops -- I believe you get free admission if you do.

Firstly, this is one place to catch the glance, understand the culture. Most cetainly, this is a must for vising Corea/Seoul.

We went on a free Seoul airport tour to see this palace and did not get to see everything. It is a massive place where one should set aside a few hours to explore. We also went in the winter, when it was cold. I imagine in the summer it's a lot better. With that said, I really enjoyed walking and taking pictures of the various buildings. There wasn't too many places to go inside, but one could look into some of the main buildings, such as the throne room of the king.

This is pretty much a "must see" if you are going to Seoul and it is located right near the center of the city, so there's no excuse to miss it unless such things bore you.
