I came across The National Folk Museum of Korea purely by accident while waiting for the MMCA to open. Just across the street free, I thought why not? It's an interesting introduction to how Korean daily life and worship have evolved over time. Well worth a visit.

Nice overview of Korean history. Lovely exhibits and objects to view. Highly interactive - including one exhibit about Korean astronomy and star mapping - including star magnitudes. Of course there was a bit of Korean dream analysis, too. Very interesting.

I came to this museum after visiting the nearby Gyeongbokgung Palace. It showcased the historical artifacts that were used in the daily lives of Korean people in the past, ie domestic, agricultural lifestyles and cultural beliefs. It has 3 permanent exhibitions and 2 special exhibitions. There is also a souvenir shop, toilet facilities and seats for resting. Admission is free.

This museum is located at the rear entrance to the Gyeonbokgung Palace. Depending on your level of interest, your visit can be relatively short or longer,. In either case, this is a worthwhile site. Like most sites in South Korea, there a a number of steps to navigate.
