Government operated open museum which captures many of the artifacts of how the nobles lived in the past. Things to view include are buildings, walkways and numerous artifacts both from everyday life to scientific measurements of nature. Coffee shops and memento shops are conveniently located across the street.

Beautiful grounds, well maintained buildings and a story to tell. Well worth visiting. The history of these buildings relates to the people who made a difference in Korea and their related impact on the nations history is remembered on the 50 000w and 5 000w notes.

CYC ( 2014.01.17 ) Ojuk means black bamboo. There was a birthplace of Scholar Yul-gok and His Mother Shin Sa-im-dang. Yulgok was described in 5,000 won bill, and Shin Saimdang in 50,000 won bill. This place was some Korean-style house and some museum. About 1 hour or more, you can enjoy Korean history and atmosphere.

If you don't have time to look up these two well-known figures of the Joseon dynasty, take out your money!... More
