This wasn't a real dynamic place to visit. There was an exhibit to walk through but for me not much wow factor. I wouldn't go far out of my way to see it.

Although I expected to see a real inside room of the tomb, I just could see the replica of it and I saw the real tombs outside.However, it's not bad even to see the historical site and taste ancient Baekje funeral culture.

Interpretive center was very nice to learn about the tomb and how it looks inside since you can't go into the actual tomb. Didn't have much time to look everywhere, but it seemed to offer nice walks and museums around the area.
