(20+ reviews on the web)
History Museum Museum
See over 1,000 relics and artifacts at Koryo Museum, which depicts the traditions and culture during Koryo dynasty rule. Once a Confucian educational school, the museum now offers exhibitions showing former buildings on the grounds and highlighting its architectural style through Korean history. Take a stroll around the spacious park with ancient trees, which surrounds the hut-like houses and small monuments. See the coffin of King Kongmin, which--though damaged--still features murals on the side. Because of its significant history, couples visit the site on their wedding day. Guides assist in translation of Korean documents. The site also includes a gift shop, which offers postcards, stamps, and other items.
