Quaint remnant of what was once a larger palace complex. We saw Unhyeongung on the map, so stopped in while on a walk thru the area. Free admission, 30-45 minutes to see it all, including a small museum of "relics" and a few 'window' displays of clothing and way of life at the time. Really, if you plan on seeing any of the other expansive palaces in Seoul, this site is not a destination you should go out of your way to see.

As others have said, this site is pretty small; you can check out everything in just a little over .5 hr. While it pales compared to nearby Gyeongbukgung and Changdeokgung, it's still a pretty place to see, especially in the winter when the field is covered by snow. You can enter and look around freely. It open at 9am.

This is a small replica of a small palace that once stood here. It's completely free to visit and you do actually get what you pay for. Not much. It's interesting enough and there is a small museum on site, but otherwise, it's just a collection of buildings that you cannot enter. Some are open to view from the door, but not many.

I enjoyed visiting this place. It's small so we didn't get to tire ourselves just to see everything of it. And there are mannequins and descriptions too in almost all of its rooms that perfectly describe the history of Unhyeonggung.

When we went there, there was also a free Korean folk show and we got to witness the showcase of different traditional Korean dances. Really cool. =)

Hanbok dresses are available too for rent if you want to roam the palace ground in traditional Korean clothing and have your pics taken.
