National Folk Museum of Korea, Seoul Overview

The museum uses replicas of objects used throughout history to recreate the lives of the Korean people over the centuries.

The museum was established in 1945 and has moved about a couple of times before finally opening on it's current site in 1993. The replica collection of the museum is actually quite expansive, with almost 100,000 artefacts, separated into three main exhibition halls. The History of Korean People uses objects and tools to depict the everyday lives of Koreans from pre-historic times to the end of the Joseon Dynasty. The Korean Way of Life depicts lives of Korean villagers in ancient times. The last exhibition is the Life Cycle of the Koreans, which lays emphasis on the Confucianism in Korean literature and how the tradition has given birth to modern customs. The museum provides an interesting insight into the lives and culture of the Koreans.
