Free museum. The Hankook exhibit was being set up, but I was still able to walk around. Two other exhibitions were not yet open (opening 13/12). Two permanent exhibitions are small, but interesting. Allow an hour or so. Cafe on ground level, which was popular with local workers and had coffee special from 11-1.30pm (from memory).
Should have audio introduction all these costumes but anyway enjoy reading it if you are interested
