One of the places we (our tour group) visited when I went to Seoul is The National Folk Museum of Korea. Located in the heart of Seoul and right next to Gyeongbokgung Palace, the national museum features over 98,000 artifacts and comprises of three exhibition halls.

According to the website,the Three Exhibition Halls are:

“1.) History of Korean People – which displays the representative materials of everyday life and customs in Korea from prehistoric to modern times.

“2.) The Korean Way of Life – which illustrates how Korean life of the Joseon period (1392-1910) revolved around the cycles of nature central to an agricultural society.

“3.) Life Cycle of Koreans – which traces the  major events in the life of  a Korean born into the upper class of Joseon (1392-1910)  society.”
