“Well Presented”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

The mixture of colors of their murals, galleries showcasing life size display of houses, shoes, ornaments were very delightful to see.

The museum captures their culture and well-presented these through the different exhibits and architecture. English translations were available and entrance is free.

Very informative and recommending this as a must see for all first timers.

“Great place for children and adults!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

This was a great experience. It is interesting for adults and has beautiful architecture, and the children's museum is great for kids. Bring lots of water if you are going in the summer, I got tired very quickly. Plan to purchase the 4 palace tour because this is right next to the Gyeongbokgun and changdeogun palaces, and you will save money by purchasing the combined pass (it is 8,000 won for changdeogun an secret garden alone, but 10,000 for changdeogun, the secret garden, Gyeongbokgun, and the Folk Museum (which includes the children's museum).

“Interesting place to visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

We went to the National Folk Museum after taking the English tour at the Gyeongbokgung Palace. The museum was very organized and the artifacts were preserved well. It was a good learning experience. Will definitely go back and get a guide next time!
