I enjoyed this museum.
The building is huge and modern in a nice surrounding area.
There are two main exhibition halls. One with a permanent exhibition about the history of Korea through different artefacts and another one with temporary exhibitions.
The main gallery is free admission.
If you enjoy history and looking at different artefacts you can spend a few hours there.
I went on my own on a Sunday morning and I spent around three hours.
There are spaces for you to sit down and rest your legs. There are also some cafeterias and museum shoppings. Throughout the building.
I sincerely recommend.

That was our last day in South Korea, and our last day of the long vacation. So, we were a bit exhausted, and the museum building is so big. It’s amazing, the architecture, and the collection.

Since I love history, National Museum of Korea is the best place to visit, they had 3 floors and each floor describe different history. I could spend hours inside. The history also interest me.

I do love a good museum but this one is particularly impressive. It is incredibly large, very modern, and super organized. All of the signs are in English too so there are no issues with understanding everything.

The building is imposing and the exhibits very well laid out.
It is not cluttered and there are themed rooms with very good exhibits.
Well worth a visit while you are in Seoul.
