A free tour every hour is included with the reasonable 3000 won admission which will enhance the visit for non-Korean visitors. Worth a visit if already in Hanok village.

This was worth the price if you are staying or visiting Jeonju Hanok Village. Not the best Shrine I've ever been to, but it was interesting and there is a museum on the premises that is interesting.

Certainly worth going in to have a look at the various buildings. The place where they houses the manuscripts is particularly interesting. Also be sure to check out the Portrait Museum (no Additional charge once you are in the grounds).
