1. Seoul: National Museum of Korea Guided Tour
Enjoy a visit to the National Museum of Korea, home to a suite of major historical objects from ancient to contemporary Korea. It is recognized as one of the best organized and most informative museums in the world. The best way to get around is with a guided tour, during which you'll hear about the establishment's rich history and have the chance to ask questions. Meet your tour guide at the entrance to the museum and grab your audio receiver for better listening. Your tour guide will take you from the ancient through to the modern history of Korea. Feel free to ask any questions you may have along the way. In the history portion, your journey will begin with learning about the three ancient kingdoms of Korean territory. Continue on through rather modern history and learn about Korea's deep roots in Buddhism as you admire beautifully presented religious decors and statues. The next stops focus on sculptures and crafts in exhibitions consisting of national treasures made of gold, valuable stones, and porcelain. Take enough time to look around all permanent and special exhibitions at the museum at your own pace after the guided tour.
