Korean Furniture Museum

330-577 Seongbuk-dong, Seongbuk-gu, Seoul, Korea

The Basics

Visitors can only view the collection by reserving a private tour in advance. Thanks to this exclusive policy, walking the grounds and ducking into the traditional buildings feels like stepping back in time. The tour, available in English, offers insight into the lives of families living in hanoks during the Joseon Dynasty. You’ll learn about the buildings’ design and materials, and how each room was laid out based on its purpose in the home.
