Very small museum, no English audio guide, 9k won entry fee, off the center. Rather go to the one in Seoul - much bigger, free entry and free English guided tours.

The museum is in a former school. It is nice and offers a good overview of the history. It is just a bit away from the metro. There are surely some buses that drop you off nearby, but not the city tour bus for instance.

I went here when a relative visited me from America. Like most museums in South Korea, it's very well laid out and welcoming. If anything, I was surprised at how few people were there. (It was a weekday.) It's obviously a lot smaller than the...More

Free entry. All signage in Korean. Difficult to know where to go once inside but it's not long before you are politely ushered to the correct start point then it's a matter of just going to the next open door. Magnificent history to be read...More

There is a good amount to see, some English translations, but a good depiction of the richness of the Korean history. I visited over the Chuseok holiday and it was packed with families. Chuseok is all about getting the family together and spending time enjoying...More

If you have time, it's worth visiting. Only takes about an hour. There were hands on exhibits for children that had potential as well.

This museum is great when there are exhibits and the park around it is gorgeous. Perhaps things have changed since I came here but a few more translations would have been helpful.

A good museum but not like other museum at akl! Yet, I appreciate the parks outside and at tje back of the museum which has a small trailing stuff. It's good to visit in Chuseok cuz you'll enjoy the free games and free foods. 😂

As a national museum it is just an average place. We visited this place on weekends and bumped into some crazy Daegu people- being annoying. Visit here on week days as possible. I have never experienced so many bad mannered people at one place. An...More
