Fodor's Review

For anyone who wants to become better acquainted with Korea's unique history, culture, or arts the National Museum is the museum to visit. The sixth largest in the world, any of the 13,000 works of art permanently on display could stand impressively on its own. By following the chronologically arranged path, visitors get a sense of not only the depth and beauty of Korean culture, but also how it evolved over the centuries. In addition to the expansive permanent collection, the museum hosts impressive special exhibitions as well. On Saturdays, the museum holds special events such as concerts, performances, or film festivals. For those wanting more information about the works and periods of Korean history, the museum offers guided tours in English twice daily.
