What To Expect
Discover antique furniture in the Joseon Dynasty, the longest-ruling Confucian dynasty and the last dynasty to rule over Korea.
The Furniture Museum was the brainchild of a former Yonsei University professor, Chyung Mi-sook, which after 14 years of construction, unofficially opened in 2008. The former professor personally amassed the museum's 2,000 pieces of Joseon Dynasty furniture in a span of more than five decades.
Unhyeongung Royal Residence was the home of the a young Gojong, an Emperor during the Joseon Dynasty. This was where his father, Yi Haeung (better known as Heungson Daewongun) continued to live for most of his life. During that period, the place was renovated under the orders of Queen Mother Jo into a grand and palace-like house with four gates.
Jogyesa Temple, which is located in the middle of the city, does not give off the solemn and traditional air of other temples which are located deep in the mountains. Although it does not offer the seasonal scenery of the mountains and the sea, the first thing you will notice are the lovely locusts trees that are about 500 years old.
Insadong Shopping District is an important place located in the heart of the city, where old but precious and traditional goods are on display. Within the alleys of this street are galleries, traditional restaurants, tea houses and cafes.
