“Wanggungni Historic Site & Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

There are two aspects of Wanggungni, the expansive archeological site, and the adjacent museum. Each compliment each other, because the ruined palace is basically only foundations and one impressive 5-story stone pagoda. The ancient pagoda is a national treasure. The museum helps to explain the ruins and the tremendous Baekje treasures being unearthed here.

The staff at the museum are excellent, while some do not speak English, they went out of their way to be helpful. The museum and ruined palace site are way off the tourist map, and it is not easy to travel here by public transportation.

Wanggungni is a vast complex of palace ruins that date from the early 7th century. Countless artifacts have been found here, and the excavations are ongoing. Please respect the site, and take some time within the museum to give the somewhat sparse ruins context.
