National Hangeul Museum

The last stop of my museum hopping is the National Hangeul Museum. It is located few blocks away from the National Museum of Korea. You should definitely visit this if you’re a fan of Hangeul.

The history of hangeul was presented by some miniatures for each historical event.It is divided into three sections: The Creation of Hangeul, Easily Learned and Conveniently Used, and The Globalization of Hangeul.

You can see this when you enter the Footprints of Hangeul Exhibition Hall. Inside it, you can watch a video presentation about the principle behind the creation of Hangeul.

Many artifacts about Hangeul are showcased in the second floor.

It was designed to help foreigners easily learn the phonetic language of Korean. I really enjoyed this part. They have so many interactive activities.

I had a hard time removing the magnets but it’s fulfilling to see my name there.

It’s like you are just playing a game while learning how to read and write Hangeul.
