Updated history


The National Museum of Korea in Yongsan District, central Seoul, has renovated its exhibition halls dedicated to Korea’s ancient dynasties of Balhae (698-926) and Goryeo (918-1392) based on the results of the latest academic research on those periods. Of the 770 artifacts on display, about 230 are being shown to the public for the first time. Highlights include roof tiles and Buddhist statues from Balhae; lacquerware inlaid with mother-of-pearl designed to store Buddhist sutras, or religious texts, from Goryeo; as well as celadon pieces, jade accessories and other Buddhist artworks from Goryeo.
