I didn't know what actually in my mind, yesterday I decided to go to The National Folk Museum of Korea that located in Gyeongbokgung area. Well, I am not a history lover, well, i just thought yesterday wasn't a real me HAHA. I have been here many times, since everytime tourism comes to Korea must be brought here. This is my 6th times and the FIRST time, i felt so excited about this
Actually they have 3 main galleries inside, 2 special exhibition halls, and 1 Children museum.
Shortly, GALLERY 1 is history of the Korean people, the timeline history from the very first originaly, nature to humanity, many territorial expansion and kingdoms, Japan colonial era, until now a days daily life.
GALLERY 2 is korean way of life, full with artifacts displayed depict life in a traditional Korean village, every season different tools, clothes and traditional houses.
GALLERY 3 is korean life passages, shows lifetime experiences of an elite member of yangban class of joseon society.
AND HERE MY FAVORITE
