We at the Horim Museum warmly welcome each and every one of you. It was opened in 1982, with our goal to develop our national culture and pass it on to our next generations. We have so far made tremendous efforts for our cultural development and have successfully become a museum to represent Korea. The Horim Museum Sillim (main) and the Horim Museum Sinsa (branch) are both located in Seoul. The Horim Museum Sillim is situated in Sillim-dong, Gwanak-gu and serves as a storage of collections, researches, and exhibits of cultural assets. As for the Horim Museum Sinsa, it is in Horim Art Center, Sinsa-dong, Gangnam-gu. Being at the center of modern culture, it is engaged in educating people through exhibits and educational programs to promote our traditional cultural heritages far and wide. Including eight national treasures, fifty-two pieces of treasure and nine pieces of cultural properties of Seoul, the museum owns approximately 18,000 works of art. This includes earthenwares, ceramics, paintings, classical books and crafts recognized for its superiority at home and abroad. Serving as an open cultural platform in the hub of the city, Horim Museum will spare no efforts in keeping our cultural heritages alive in the hearts and minds of people at home and abroad. We hope you enjoy the beautiful future that blossoms from our tradition. We very much appreciate your continuing support and encouragement.
