My first experience of Korean history. It's a nice little palace which has been wrll naintained/restored and which is of interesting design. Some rooms contain some pictoral or other represenntation of the period, which makes it a bit more interesting. Its free so easy to pop in and see when visiting grander nearby palaces. Not in the top flight of palces but worth a visit.

It's called palace but it's not a palace. Just an old residence building. It's beautiful and free of admission.

Unhyeonggung is located not far from Insadong and Changdeokgung Palace. It is in the middle of a street with no eye-catching sign, but you can find it through the traditional Korean gray rooftop. The mansion is free of charge with not many tourists. The buildings here are of strong traditional Korean style with white wall and brown wooden pillars. Strictly speaking, it is not a palace, but a residence of an emperor. So its Korean style is more authentic than those palaces.

Nice little palace with a huge gingko tree greeting you upon entering the palace. Plenty of places for you to take pictures. However, the western building located behind the palace is closed for public which is famous for being Goblin's house (drama). So disappointed that we couldn't go in...

You can walk around and peek inside the traditional buildings and walk on the grounds.

It’s close to the metro and best of all, there is no entrance fee. Suggest visiting when you go see the main attractions in the area including Insadong neighbourhood.

On the occasion I visited, it was a fall festival with games, music and traditional dancing.
