“Good to pass by if you're in Gwanghamun Square”

King Sejong Memorial Hall
Ranked #147 of 838 things to do in Seoul
Attraction details
Reviewed 22 March 2017

This underground museum is a good place to visit if you're passing by Gwanghamun Square. It's a good way to escape the heat during a hot day, to warm yourself during winter and to pass time during a rainy day.

You'll get to be inspired by the story of King Sejong as you walk thru the tunnel, read his achievements and see how his works have benefited the country.

Connected with the king Sejong statue on the guanghuamun square and it's a free admission exhibition, which shows how the Hanja was created (by king Sejong) the evolution of Korea, next to it is the Yi sun sin exhibition, which shows a replica of the infamous turtle battleship. There are activities for kids also practising Hanja characters, rebuilding of the battle ship etc.

Not being familiar with this aspect of Korean history, this was a nice introduction.

The museum is open, modern, and well maintained. Offered several opportunities for children to interact using technology.

This would be good for a rainy day as it is all indoors. It is located near the Palace, Ferry Memorial, and US embassy. There are several coffee shops within walking distance.

To be honest, I didn't go too into depth at this museum, but it was nice to walk around and get the gist of it.

This place has interactive displays and some very informative sections on two of Korea's greatest heroes. As a non-Korean speaker there was still enough information for me to get a great deal out of our visit. Not sure the 4D film added much, but it was free, and only lasted 9 minutes!
