National Folk Museum of Korea

National Folk Museum of Korea
Seoul, South Korea

National Folk Museum of Korea is a museum that represents daily life and culture of Korea, which is visited by more than 2 million people every year. We provide educational and cultural opportunities to better understand and experience the traditional Korean lifestyle. Since its establishment in 1946, the National Museum of Anthropology has primarily investigated and researched Korean folklife, and has acquired, preserved, and exhibited Korean folklife artifacts. Over the years, we have presented permanent and special exhibitions, published reports, and conducted public education programs including lectures. Now, in keeping with the paradigm for museums in the 21st century that require them to be more responsive to the public and take an open and specialized approach, we are striving to expand our visitor base and reach out to visitors more effectively.
