Royal Palace Experience Program
Royal palaces like Gyeongbokgung Palace and Changgyeonggung Palace are some of the many must-see tourist attractions in Seoul. As well as exploring the palace grounds, visitors can enjoy several experiential programs that enable one to truly take in the culture of these royal places.

At Gyeongbokgung Palace, a reenactment of the historical changing of the royal guards ceremony is held daily. After watching the ceremony, you can try on the guards' costumes and have your photo taken with them. The program runs from 10:00 to 17:00 in the summer (closed on Tuesdays and lunch time from 12:00 to 13:00).

Currently in each palace, special programs that vary by season include the moonlight tour at Changdeokgung Palace and the special exhibition at Gyeonghoeru Pavilion. Please double check the information prior to your visit to avoid any unexpected inconveniences.
