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.
Hangeul is the most valued treasure of Korea’s heritage. The National Hangeul Museum was opened to the public last October 9, 2014 to promote the linguistic and cultural value of Hangeul.
Footprints 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.
It has hands-on exhibits for children. Children’s Museum consists of three parts: Easy Hangeul, Beautiful Hangeul and Literary Hangeul.
Hangeul Learning Center
It was designed to help foreigners easily learn the phonetic language of Korean. I really enjoyed this part. They have so many interactive activities.
It’s like you are just playing a game while learning how to read and write Hangeul.
How to go there:
Take the Seoul Subway Line 4 and get off at Ichon Station (Exit 2). Walk toward Yongsan Family Park.
