Information of Tourist Attraction
The National Museum of Korea

The National Museum of Korea has variety of relics numbering about 300,000, The museum is very large considering the number of the relics it has. There is also a outdoor exhibit, not only indoor exhibitions. In the outdoor exhibit, there are lots of things to see, like stone pagodas. In the garden in front of the museum, there is a beautiful waterfall which makes it a perfect place for a walk. It takes too long time to see all those relics, I recommend you to see permanent exhibition which is arranged in historical order.

National Museum of Korean Contemporary History

National Museum of Korean Contemporary History is the first national modern contemporary museum ever opened in Korea and it showcases the nation’s history in a comprehensive and structured way. The museum first opened its door to the public on December 26, 2012. Located in Sejong-daero, Jongno-gu, the building where the museum is currently housed was formerly that of Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism. Its current renovated state has 4 open-run exhibition chambers and 2 themed, rotating exhibit halls. Also inside the building is a seminar room, lecture hall, café, souvenir shop and a rooftop garden.
