We were walking through the square, saw the massive statues of King Sejong and Admiral Yi Sunshin, so we decided to stop in. I found this museum very engaging for being devoted to only two historical figures. Turns out the King Sejong created the Korean language and was an early model for the value of scholarship. Admiral Yi's story is simply amazing and the exhibits in that portion of the museum are fantastic.
We intended to just have a quick look and ended up staying for two hours. We were pleasantly surprised.
Also, the museum provides (for a charge) activities for kids. We loved making the wood cut prints - my kids still have theirs!
If you have some time, stop in and see what this museum has to offer!

On my way to palace G and N market, you can’t miss this square.
Easy to walk through, very interesting statues (king and admiral) what is explained.
Try the underneath museum. Really good to get a taste of Korean culture and history.

Wind blowing will make your face frozen when walking in this square. King Sejong's underground memorial/museum can be your savior to escape the winter cold. Nice to walk in this square until you reach Gyeongbokgung Palace.

Visited Gwanghwamun Square to take photos of the King Sejong statue. When I arrived at the statue, I found that there's a museum dedicated to the king down under the statue. Admission into the museum is free and there's no crowd at all. Worth visiting.
