Korean Furniture Museum

Opened in 2008, the Korean Furniture Museum is one of Seoul’s best kept secrets. Housed within a series of beautifully maintained Korean traditional houses, or hanoks, the museum contains a collection of more than 2,000 pieces of Joseon Dynasty furniture collected by the private museum’s owner, Chyung Mi-sook, throughout his life.

To maintain a sense of history and authenticity on the exquisitely maintained grounds, the museum has been kept private; visitors can only view the collection on a private tour by reservation only. Thanks to this exclusivity policy, walking the grounds and ducking into the traditional buildings feels like stepping back in time. 

The tour, available in English, offers an insight into what life was like for a family living in a hanok during the Joseon Dynasty. You’ll learn why the buildings were designed the way they were, why certain materials were chosen and how each room was laid out based on its purpose in the home.

Practical Info

Guided English tours are offered Tuesday through Saturday at 2:00pm and 4:00pm.
