“Interesting place, worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

First of all, this museum is free which I appreciated. Basically the focus here is late 19th century Korean history to the present--end of the Joson dynasty, Japanese occupation, Korean war and developing a democracy.I learned quite a bit, though at times it felt more like propaganda. I had a limited amount of time so I had to skip the exhibits about the most recent times.
