It’s amazing how much the entry ticket to this sight gets you including access to this amazing museum! Such a beautiful cross section of Korean history with the amazing pagoda just nearby. There’s also a fantastic bookshop here so you can take part of the culture and history home with you. This museum is a must visit! An interactive, efficient and easy to navigate museum with many mini activities and loads of sound effects you can experience! I am so glad I made time to visit.
