Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Nice place. You can definitely spend a hole day walking around there. They make free tours in very specific hours. I recommend checking when there’s one. Tours will be in Chinese, English, Spanish and Korean I think. We took a bus to go there, make sure to use NAVER as your app

    Really enjoyed this visit
    Lots of information about Koreans and the Vietnam war.

    Also a lot of information about wars that happen in the 18th/19th century.

    Had a great collection of wool equipment and machinery and vehicles.
    The outside area is just as great

    Really enjoyed my visit

    Very crowded during weekends and holidays. I would recommend visiting it early if you want to go shopping and on business days. After 4pm there’s a market specially focused in food. You can try everything.

    Can't really add much to the previous reviews, other than to say other than the permanent collection-which is fabulous-the museum often has special exhibitions which are of great interest.

    I noticed it when I got off the Airport Limousine Bus Stop located near it. Hurriedly left my luggage and began my visit. Learned that senior citizens can enter free, just show proof of age. Added to my visit the tour of the Secret Garden, cost was 5,000 won or about $4.

    There are several buildings in the compound, all serving different purposes. Note that among the 5 palaces, only this one is a Unesco Heritage Site. Many areas to look at and take photos here.

    Secret Garden Tour: can be visited on your own. No need to pay extra 5 k if you just want to see the 4 major areas. With the tour, the English speaking Guide tells about the place, reason for their construction, etc.

    Caveat: There are many groups of children having their field trips here. Their noise and running around could be issues for some visitors.

    Highly recommended to visit this attraction!

    This is a great place from which to see the amazing sights of the new and old parts of bustling Seoul. Unfortunately for us, it was a rainy day when we visited.

    Thanks Bobby! Even though there was some hiccups with tour members not of your fault you'd dealt with it swiftly and well. The group was appreciative with all that you've done and you deserve a raise. Amen.
