More from the National Folk Museum of Korea

This is Melissa from KPG Productions blogging from Seoul, South Korea.

I visited the National Folk Museum of Korea yesterday. I've uploaded a video of the "A Street to the Past" open-air exhibit to Youtube. There is a lot to see in this museum. The museum has 3 exhibition halls. I only got to visit one yesterday, it was the "History of Korean People" exhibition. It included a timeline of Korean ancestry, cave painting, and artifacts from ancients times to modern times.

I walked to the museum from Gwanghwamun subway station. Right outside of the station is a huge statue of King Sejong.

As I was standing in the courtyard looking around, a group of performers came by in some sort of procession. I got video of that and will upload it later. You can see their red and blue outfits in the background of this picture.

There's a lot of ancient architecture in this area, including this look-out post.

Inside the museum grounds there were these stone statues that used to protect ancient Korean tombs. The plaque said they were sold to foreigners by thieves but later recovered by a Korean collector.

This big building is in the middle of the museum grounds. People are not allowed to climb the steps.

The museum includes a Children's Museum.

This is the "A Street to the Past" open-air exhibit which I made a video about.
