Small museum but interesting and it's free. The location is up on a hill so you will have a nice view of the city while you're up there.

This museum was recently updated and I was really impressed with the informative displays! I learned a lot about Seoul and the wall. Free admission, spent about an hour enjoying the museum - was the only one there!
