It's free!

I visited this Museum when it was China New Year or Lunar New Year for Korean. They have a festival, many food stalls, and some traditional dance show (we can dance together and take pictures with the dancers after their routine finished).

If you want to know the history of the Republic of South Korea, visit here.

We stumbled across this museum and were glad we did! It's a delightful museum that shows the pride the residents of Seoul have in their city and its history. On one of the upper floors, there's a huge miniature layout of the city. You can stand above it or off to the side to see how the city is laid out. You can select neighborhoods and highlight them, but unfortunately this feature is not available in English. I can away impressed with what the people of Seoul accomplished in rebuilding their city after the war.

I found this museum more interesting than the Korean War Museum or the National Museum. I particularly liked the section on the reconstruction of the city after 1953 and its development over the following frenetic decades.

A great place to learn about history of Korea. The layout of museum is very well organized. However, staff need to be more conversant in English.

Good exhibits about the history of Seoul. It is free unlike museums in Europe and they dont pressure you to make a donation. Worth a visit to understand more about Seoul. Spent about 2 hours here. Well worth the time.
