Unhyeongung Palace Tours

22 reviews
Once the royal residence of Prince Regent Daewon-gun, this historic palace is now a public museum that draws locals and travelers to its ornate halls and impressive gates. Visitors will find a network of galleries inside the palace where mannequins dressed in traditional clothing pay homage to the nation’s colorful past. The Morakdang Hall, the palace’s largest building, was once a women’s residence. Visitors will find a typical Korean kitchen here and may even catch a contemporary wedding ceremony, since the space is a popular spot among locals exchanging vows. And while these are certainly lovely to see, lucky travelers who visit Unhyeongung in the spring or fall have the opportunity to witness a royal wedding reenactment. The ceremony is an exact reenactment of King Gojong and Empress Myeongseong’s wedding and showcases traditional royal fashion and costumes, which are sure impress.
