  • This is an excellent and free museum. There is a huge range of artefacts, very well presented. Be aware there are no refreshments inside the halls. Use the cafe in the grounds.

  • Gyeongju National Museum isn’t that large but the quality makes up for the lack of quantity. The curators did a fantastic job of setting up the displays that make the Silla-era treasures look...

  • Hello all tourists. This museum is the best place. You can see various treasures of Shilla Kingdom, also it is free entrance. I guess it takes 5 hours to look around, you will absolutely enjoy. Never miss this place.
  • Very nice museum and good restaurant. For the museum you don't have to pay. The restaurant compared with the food outside a little bit more expensive, but realy worth it. About the souveniers this is a bit expensive, but on the other hand the museum is for free and you can stay there for more than 5 hours and you haven't seen it all.
