What people are saying:

This museum is very nice. It has permanent exhibitions of the everyday lives of Ancient Koreans. This museum has a nice cafe that you can sit and get ice cream, coffee, etc from. The muesum is clean and easy to navigate around. I recommend checking it out if you want to learn more about ancient Korean history.
