Annex of National Museum of Contemporary Art
The beautiful Annex of National Museum of Contemporary Art at Deoksugung Palace is an annex to the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Gwacheon outside of Seoul. Well worth visiting!
The larger Gyeongbokgung Palace is a BIG place to walk around but if you wish to see something small-scale then Deoksugung Palace is a great alternative as it is also closer to the subway...
