Buyeo National Museum

Museum in Buyeo

This museum houses one of the best collections of Baekje artefacts, and has extensive English captions, making it a good place to get a primer on pre-Baekje and Baekje culture. The highlight is a glittering Baekje-era incense burner. Weighing 12kg, the burner and its pedestal are covered with incredibly intricate and well-preserved metalwork, crested with the legendary bonghwang bird.
