Don’t let the name mislead you. What this really is, is a museum of traditional Korean culture. There are stories to go with each piece of furniture and each room of the carefully reconstructed and rebuilt historic houses. A fascinating place to see how Korea...More

Definitely one of the best attractions in Seoul so far. This private museum, despite its unassuming name, is surprisingly stunning and awesome. Perhaps the best-kept secret spot in the city. I’ve spent more than 1 month traveling around all the Korea peninsula and this is...More

A beautiful private museum when you can see how Korean noble families lived in the olden days. The director of the museum has constructed traditional hanok with original room settings, complete with furniture from the era. The result is quite breathtaking and rich in history....More

This is definitely a hidden gem as the location is not accessible via public transport. The best way to get there is via taxi from the nearest train station. Prebooking of a tour is essential as it is only open for guided visit. If you...More

Stunning examples of traditional Korean architecture in a truly lovely setting. The grounds are peaceful and I felt like I was transported to another era. The furniture collection itself is quite small, though still interesting and indicative of traditional Korean life. It's not the easiest...More

This museum has potential but I felt like I wanted more. The collection of ancient furniture was surprisingly small; our guide mentioned that most furniture were destroyed when their owner died which would have been a reason why the collection wasn't large. However, the collection...More
