We ventured to National Museum of Korea, which is the largest museum in Korea and showcases precious Korean cultural assets that reveal the story of Korea's fascinating history, from ancient times to modern era. Although the exhibits were pretty great we didn't really get the chance to see all of it.
Part of this place is a Children's Museum with hands-on experience gallery where youngster can learn history and culture by means of play and experience. It also provides various educational programs.
In the Outdoor exhibits area, visitors can enjoy a variety of stone works such as pagodas, stupas, lanterns, and steles. There are also restaurants and cafes at various locations in the museum.
Admission fee for Permanent Exhibitions is free. There is a charge for Special Exhibitions, and tickets are available from the ticket office until 1 hour before closing. The National Museum of Korea is located 1.5 km away from Yongsan Station.
