Gyeongju National Museum
Travelers can gain incredible insight into the history of this ancient city on a visit to Gyeongiu National Museum—one of Korea’s top attractions. Well-curated displays showcase Buddhist artwork, artifacts uncovered at Anpji Pond and items unearthed during incredible archeological digs. Visitors can wander halls full of ceremonial items from long lost dynasties, golden crowns, pottery and hand-made bells.

Most of the displays are well-marked with English descriptions and audio tours are available for visitors who prefer even more information. After learning about the rich history and traditions of Gyeongiu and the Shilla Kingdom, visitors can explore the outdoor gardens and relax in the shade of towering trees before making their way back into the city streets.
