Interesting to see and read about the Korean folk life. You can pass through quickly or spend some time reading.

It was very interesting to see all the items on display. It's not a big museum, so it's easy to combine this with other sites in the area.

I have to admit I was drawn to the building by the gardens and it’s architecture. The fact that it was free admission was another benefit. Cafes and toilets on a long day sightseeing, clinched the deal.
But it was wonderfully developed.
Really enjoyed learning of the manufacturing history of the local area the stories of people.
The exhibits are interesting and little touches like being encouraged o try on traditional head wear, all brought the experience to life. The korean people are proud of where they have come from, and this visit showed us why.

We quickly went in here after spending a lot of time at the Gyeongbokgung palace. There is just a lot of stuff in here and it wasn’t that interesting to us at that point. If you are an antique buff then this could be right up your alley! Not to us after spending a lot of time at the palace.

I visited this museum as part of a City tour, spent 45 minutes there and could have easily spent all day in and around the museum. It is in a relatively modern building, laid out really well and I spent all of my time in the Korean historical section. Most of the displays are described in Korean and English. Interestingly, a significant number of Korean visitors were dressed in national costume, a regular practice, apparently.
