    We enjoyed walking around the palace and wolji pond- the surroundings are very peaceful.
    We visited during the daytime so we did not see it all lit up at night.
    Interesting place to visit- and the kids can run around throughout the lovely grounds.

    Entrance to the museum is free. There are a few halls that have displays. There is a wide variety of objects from the Silla period, varying from stone relics, to pottery and very beautiful gold artifacts. The display is very nice with English explanations. The museum is very quiet, a real pleasure to walk around and enjoy all there is to see.

    The Cheonmachong Tomb is the tomb no. 155, one of a complex of tombs in the Daereung complex. There is an entry fee of 3.00 won. Inside you can see the excavated grave with the artifacts and there are some displays on the walls. There are TV screens that tell the story of construction and excavation is different languages, including English.
