These tombs are right by the Gongju Museum (also worth visiting). To protect the tombs, you can't enter them but the museum at the tombs provides replicas as well as information about the Baekje kings. There is a nice path in the preserved area that...More

Disappointing as it's mainly replicas and the public aren't actually given access to the real tombs themselves. I suppose if you're interested in South Korean history or want to go for a stroll, it's worth a look, but it's not something I would recommend going...More

Although I expected to see a real inside room of the tomb, I just could see the replica of it and I saw the real tombs outside.However, it's not bad even to see the historical site and taste ancient Baekje funeral culture.

When you visit here, don't expect to see the actual tomb as it has been resealed to preserve the artifacts. What you actually see is a replica of the tombs in the museum. It's interesting, but probably something I would just visit once in a...More
