No Shopping DMZ Half Day Tour from Seoul

123 reviews
Enjoy the highlights of the DMZ and get back to Seoul in time for lunch on a guided group tour. Listen to immersive commentary during visits to Imjingak Park, Dora Observatory, and other important landmarks. Have your camera ready for an unobstructed view of one of the world's most famous demilitarized zones. Best of all, this excursion does not include unnecessary shopping stops that other tours add on, which saves you valuable vacation time.

free museum we surprisingly found as we were walking toward the palace down the middle where the fountain and outside statue is located. we went underground and entered for free. there you will find exhibits of korean artifacts. and there is an interactive area for kids and adults alike where you can make a key chain and other crafts for about 1000won. there is also a gift shop with drink refreshments and a restaurant. a good respite from the heat of summer. bathrooms are clean.

This is actually a museum, whose entrance is a passageway behind the Statue of King Sejong the Great. The museum exhibits has English explanation, dedicating the life and achievements of King Sejong. There is a small movie room where you can watch a video as well. It also connects to another part of the museum dedicated to Admiral Yi Sun-Shin. He is famous for defeating the Japanese with the famed turtle ship that helped win the war. There is a replica of a turtle ship you can walk on. Being underground and free admission, it is a good way to take a break from the heat or rain, enjoy some air con and also use the toilet facilities.

Briefly, we passed by the memorial hall of King Sejong. It was a nice area to check Korea's hangul (alphabet) history.

We passed by the underground museum when we were heading to the Palace from the Stream. The entrance way under the King’s statue, no admission fee. Good to have a quick visit if you don’t have much time. Not so crowded as other places in Seoul.
