Connected to Gyeongbokgung Palace, the National Folk Museum of Korea gives the visitor an insight into the daily lives of Koreans at different times of history. It has relics and artifacts from ancient Korean times with information on how the folk villagers of Korea became the hyper modern Seoulites of today. It’s a fun museum that takes the visitor back in time to different eras. Case in point is the 70-80s street where you can walk around and see what a Korean school classroom of that period looked like, what a barbershop looked like, etc. The gift shop here is particularly notable for its beautiful prints. Also, if you’re lucky, you may catch the traditional Korean performances they periodically have at the gate.
