Furniture Museum

Seoul, South Korea


At the Furniture Museum, discover antique furniture in the Joseon Dynasty, the longest-ruling Confucian dynasty and the last dynasty to rule over Korea. The Furniture Museum was the brainchild of a former Yonsei University professor, Jung Mi-sook, which after 14 years of construction, unofficially opened in 2008. The former professor personally amassed the museum's 2,000 pieces of Joseon Dynasty furniture in a span of more than five decades. With 10 exquisite hanok structures fitting together on approximately 6,600 square meters of beautifully groomed landscape, the Korea Furniture Museum is perhaps the largest best-kept secret in Seoul. For your information, Chinese President Xi Jinping, who was on a state visit to Korea, together with First Lady Peng Liyuan.
