What you'll do

If you have only 2 hours in Korea, VISIT the National Museum of Korea(NMK). You can see the essence of Korean culture at NMK. Come and embrace the soothing glow of Silla Dynasty gold crown(5th century) and the peaceful light from the Joseon Dynasty moon jar(18th century, white porcelain). Admission is FREE! This lovely 2.5 hour relaxed walking tour along the Korean art timeline is starting from enjoying the architecture of the museum learning how Korean traditional geomancy and modern architecture go together well. During the tour, you'll be invited to a museum cafe for a 30 minute traditional tea break.(NO Extra Charge for DRINKS) The Museum has rotating 6,000 item permanent exhibitions(!!!) out of its 200,000 items, but no worries. Here's your super efficient art history teller. You will meet 12 masterpieces and historical highlights with me, and this covers from the Paleolithic Age and 2,000 years of historical period of the Korean Peninsula. We will visit all the important eras of Korean history and taste all the genres such as paintings, a ten-story pagoda, ceramics, sculptures, artifacts and calligraphy. I can't wait to meet you in Seoul. Don't hesitate to join me!
