Museums in Yongsan-gu
Many people may yawn at the mention of 'museum', but there is nothing to yawn about with these Seoul museums. Art-meets-architecture, amazing artifacts and vivid history experiences are just some of the key words when visiting these museums.
Museums in Seoul are inexpensive and great places for families as well with many of them offering nursing rooms and playgrounds. They are easily accessible with public transportation and some of the museums even have guided tours in English. This is the best way to spend a rainy, or any, afternoon in Seoul. We recommend them all! Eat in one of the restaurants inside the museums or go for a walk in the neighborhood and check out other local businesses nearby using our MyDestination Seoul App, should you have a tablet, iPhone or Android phone with you.
