National Museum of Korea and Cheonggyecheon Tour

  • English English
  • 3 hours and 30 minutes
  • Hotel pick up

Discover the most intricate details of Korean history as you get lost in the National Museum in Seoul. Then explore the beautifully landscaped Cheonggyecheon, an oasis from the bustle of the city.

Itinerary

After being picked up from your hotel in Seoul, you'll head to the National Museum of Korea. This imposing modern building will take you on a fascinating journey through the country's history, art and culture.

As you explore the different rooms and their exhibitions accompanied by your expert guide, you'll learn everything about Korea from prehistoric times all the way to the end of the Korean Empire in 1910. Don't miss the magnificent sculpture and crafts section, home to some of the world's finest examples of Buddhist art, or the calligraphy exhibition, where you can admire traditional Korean painting and calligraphy.

Having made the most of the National Museum, you'll head to Cheonggyecheon, a recently revitalised urban area that has made the Cheonggye river a highlight of the South Korean capital. The area has certainly come a long way from being the place in which locals would wash their clothes, and the home of shabby makeshift houses built by migrants to Seoul following the Korean War. Discover the details of its past as you enjoy its present as a relaxing oasis from the hubbub of the city.

The tour will end at Seoul City Hall.

On Mondays, you'll visit the National Folk Museum, instead of the National Museum of Korea.
