The National Museum of Korea
Seoul, South Korea — Sculptures, paintings, relics and artifacts always come to mind everytime I hear the word “museum”, just like how I pictured the National Museum of Korea. It’s recorded as the largest museum nationwide and keeps about 15,000 precious pieces from the past to modern age.
It was an unplanned Sunday afternoon that Danny and I decided to pay a visit since both of us haven’t been to that place. Certainly, the museum swarmed with tourists and students. I, honestly, am not a fan of history, but since I am now living here, it is best to familiarize even a bit of Korea’s history. Although, no one expects me to know everything.
We first looked around the different stages of dynasties that Korea had gone through on the ground level. Then, calligraphy on the second and about some Asian countries such as China and India on the third floor. Unfortunately, our levels of interest had gone low after seeing 2 floors so we weren’t able to finish seeing everything inside the building.
We figured then to go out and go to the Hangul museum but when we reached the place, it was already closing time. We loitered at the Mirror Lake for awhile instead before finally leaving.
That’s all for now. Thanks for reading :)
