Sejong has a superb collection, especially the hanbok (traditional gown) display, which takes up an entire floor and includes outstanding royal clothing. Rarely visited, the museum should be more popular – the furniture is arranged into rooms and on display are wooden, leather and silk shoes worn by different social classes, which 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’.
