Sejong University Museum

Lonely Planet review

Sejong has a superb collection, especially the hanbok display, which takes up an entire floor and includes outstanding royal clothing. Rarely visited, the museum should be more popular – the furniture arranged into rooms, the wooden, leather and silk shoes worn by the different social classes present vivid images of Korea’s feudal past. A poem displayed at the museum praises it as ‘a place of wisdom, beauty and virtue’ where visitors can ‘listen to the thousand-year-old ancestors whispering quietly’.
