Having the most extensive collection on Korean history, the National Museum of Korea is well worth the time. And what makes it better, is that it's free.
Located near the Ichon stop, it is a little bit of walk to get to the museum building. There are plaques on the ground, that point the way to the entrance. In front of it, is a pond with a pagoda in the middle of it, which looks nice!
The museum goes through the history of Korea, on the 1st floor, starting from the prehistoric age. There are good English descriptions, telling the history, along with the artifacts from that period, on display. The museum also goes into the Three Kingdoms period, followed by the Goryeo Dynasty (918-1392) and then the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1897). And each of those section have their own sub-sections.
Other highlights is on the 3rd floor, with Buddhist art on display. And there is one section there, where there are art from other parts of Asia. There are paintings on the 2nd floor, but I did not get to see that.
Overall, this museum should be visited, being the only museum in the world, that mainly focuses on Korean art and history, with its vast collection.
