King Sejong Memorial HallFree: All day Saturdays & Sundays

King Sejong The Great Memorial Hall was established in 1970 in memory of King Sejong and his saintly virtues and great achievements. Officially opened to the public in October 1973, the memorial hall is a modern structure housing an exhibition area, auditorium, laboratory, and a reference room. The exhibition area is further divided into the Hangeul (Korean alphabet) Room, Science Room, Traditional Music Room, King Sejong Art Room, and an outdoor exhibition space. Note that everything is in Korean, none in English. There’s usually an admission charge to enter, but it’s free on Saturdays and Sundays. If your schedule won’t allow you to visit during the weekends, head instead to the other King Sejong’s tribute site: King Sejong Story (free at all time).
