Masks were worn by common village folk across the area to mock and entertain. Due to the class differences, various upper class roles were 'role played' using masks (so that the wearer could not be identified). Masks are made of all different material, such as: wood, gourd or flax. There are three halls: Korean masks, Asian masks and World masks.

I have to admit that I didn't expect much from this museum. It's on the outskirts of a tiny tradition village (Hahoe), which is known for it's traditional mask-dancing performances, so I thought I was going to see only the (roughly 12) traditional Korean masks through the ages. I was so pleasantly surprised to find an incredibly comprehensive museum, with masks from all over the world, well curated and 99% with English descriptions. Our time there went from an expectation of 15 minutes to about 90 minutes! Really interesting stuff there! Definitely recommend it.

I went here during the annual mask festival. They allowed me to take pictures of the masks. The entrance fee was reasonable. The staff was very helpful. I loved seeing where different masks came from on the planet. There is a huge mask culture throughout the world.
