After visiting Deoksugung Palace, we continued our trip to next destination. We didn't get off in all of place where the bus stopped, but chose some of them sound interesting. And, National Museum of Korea became one of our choice. It is the largest museum at Korea and become the place for precious Korean cultural assets, telling silently about Korean fascinating history. Not only in old era, but it also shows the modern era of Korean life. Its location is near Yongsan Family Park, a wooded grassland with a pond that serves as a natural habitat for various species of birds, as well as over 80 different kinds of trees. It's also near The War Memorial of Korea, which it became the next destination after.
The museum consists of a large number of exhibition array and gallery displaying so many heritage objects. The place is very clean and well organized. It is the stage for a number of cultural activities related to relics collection and preservation, research and analysis, social training, academic publications, international cultural exchange programs, concerts, and more.
