National Palace Museum of Korea

Recommended
For a complete picture of the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910), head straight to the National Palace Museum of Korea. It presents the symbols, artefacts and rituals of this monarchy impregnated with Confucianism, through displays that range from the refined life of the court, palace architecture and furniture, protocols relating to the education of royal princes and the culture of its scholars to royal palanquins and superb court portraits.
