If one wants to learn almost everything about South Korea one need not go any further than the National Folk Museum of Korea in Seoul. The museum houses close to one hundred thousand artifacts to trace the rich history of the Korean people from pre-historic times through the late 14th Century and ending with the Joseon dynasty period in 1910. The museum comprises three principal exhibition halls housing a majority of the exhibits. Other exhibits are also displayed in an open-air format. The museum itself is located inside the Gyeongbokgung Palace grounds. If one follows the exhibits in the museum it is easy to see how Confucius was such an influence on the Korean people. Most present day Korean culture traces its roots to Confucianism. Some of the displays are actual replicas of the original rice storage shelters and grinding mills.
