Kyongju National Museum

    The main preserver of Shilla era artifacts and culture, the museum features Buddhist items, sculptures, ceramics and gold crowns of the kings. The collection here rivals that of any on the peninsula, north or south. The museum is also nearby a wide-variety of other sites (i.e. Tumuli Park, Chomsongdae, Anapchi Pond) plus is host to the 'Emille Bell' one of Korea's more interesting artifacts. We won't spoil it for you here - read all about it at the museum!
