This museum is free to visit and if you need an audio guide, rent it at the service desk. It is inside the Jingfu Palace, near the exit of the ticket office. There is a large collection of exhibits detailing the daily lives of the royals and aristocrats in the past. We spent an hour inside, and we wanted to stay longer.
The museum is located in Gyeongbokgung Palace. It has 2 floors above ground and 1 floor underground. There are 15 exhibition rooms. There are guidebooks in various languages at the door, and there are cabinets for storing things. It mainly houses cultural relics and collections of the Joseon royal family. There are as many as 40,000 pieces of palace costumes, accessories, calligraphy and painting, utensils, etc., which are very gorgeous, and many familiar Chinese characters are seen. The venue also has intelligent interaction between light and shadow. The rice noodles are the history and culture of the Joseon Dynasty. There is also a stamping place on each floor, which is very interesting.
The National Gu Gong Museum is also a very important historical facility. The museum is built on a very old traditional building. You can also see a lot of good works of art in this place. There are also many decorations in the museum. .
The museum is full of exhibits and interesting objects, many of which are telling the history in their own way, some of which are really beautiful and exquisite and are well protected by later generations.
Time for change the guard of the palace!!! This happen at 2 pm . Best arrive before to see all event
Wow, this museum is full of Korea's history. It's definitely worth a stop for those who want to take a look and see what historical Korea looked like (the palace grounds) and also go back in time and learn about the king's clothing, daily routines, and view artifacts. My group didn't have much time here and we spent all of our time trying to get through the different floors of the museum that we didn't explore the other palace buildings. A friend took photos of palace guards marching outside and she also got a photo with one (he was looking a bit stoic).In the museum, you can grab postcards from the front desk and stamp them with the corresponding imprint. It's a free memento; there's also a museum gift shop downstairs.
This has many treasures. I loved the artifacts but most of all what royal life looked like was my favorite. What was the best feature was the modern facilities and air conditioning.
The National Museum may be their representative collection here, but to be honest, except for some things that feel very Chinese, if you have been to the collections of those major cultural relics provinces in China, the collections here are really nothing. It's a very attractive place... well, maybe my interest in Korea is average. South Korea should only attract me by bulletproof and some Hallyu stars. It’s okay to go shopping by the way, but the weather is really good these two days, the blue sky and white clouds are really beautiful.
