South Korea // Seoul //

National Folk Museum


Inside the palace complex is the National Folk Museum (국립 민속 박물관). Although huge, there’s only one level, stuffed with dioramas and explanations of Korean ways of life long since gone, from old fishing and farming practices to clothing worn during the Three Kingdoms era. The free folk performances outside the museum are well worth watching.
