The National Museum of Korea is the nation’s main cultural and historical repository, preserving and exhibiting items from prehistoric times to the early 20th Century. Since it first opened in 2005, the museum has received a wealth of international acclaim, including being ranked the 9th most-visited museum worldwide by the Art Newspaper and declared a “must-see place” by the Michelin Guide, which also awarded it three stars.

For visitors, the museum offers free one-hour guided tours in Korean, English, Japanese, and Chinese on its major masterpieces. It also functions as a unique venue for international conventions and receptions in its indoor and outdoor spaces, notably including the welcome reception and working dinner for the G20 Seoul Summit 2010.

Visitors can also attend fabulous world-class performances and concerts at the complex’s Yong Theater or simply enjoy the afternoon in the tree-filled park adjacent to the museum.
