What people say

"Dongdaemun History & Culture Park is a thrilling juxtaposition of old with new. The park celebrates hundreds of years of Korean history and culture near many of the most modern attractions in Seoul. Originally a site of a Joseon Dynasty military center, the park literally displays centuries of South Korean history with its relics and treasured memorabilia. There are more than 1,000 artifacts on display, which again, stand in stark contrast to the many modern wonders of the area like Dongdaemun Design Park. "
"this is a very very cool building and destination to talk a walk around especially at night! theres many events that happen such as "seoul fashion week", just look out for the dates! "
"Trendy, quieter neighbourhood near the famous Dongdaemun Design Plaza "
