The Seoul City Wall museum is located near the Heunginjimun gate of the city, at a spot where a portion of the city wall still exists for walking. The museum is dedicated to presenting the historical and cultural significance of the City Wall in the history of Seoul.

At the highest point in this part of the wall, Naksan Park, offers great views of the city, outside and inside the wall.

The Seoul City Wall was an important part of the city, stretching 18.6 km (11.6 miles) along the ridges of Seoul's four inner mountains, and it is great the way it has been preserved for tourists and locals to experience and enjoy.
