What people are saying:

A must-visit place to learn about the history of Gyeongju. If you like the history of Gyeongju and the Silla Dynasty and have enough time to travel, it is recommended to visit the National Gyeongju Museum before visiting other scenic spots. There is a general understanding of the history of. Visiting the museum is free, but you need to pick up the ticket at the window of the gate. The museum mainly introduces the process of the Silla dynasty from its founding to its prosperity and then to its decline, including politics, economy, military, religion, and the production and life of the people during the Silla era. Needless to say, the cultural relics displayed in the museum are outside the museum. There are various inscriptions, Buddha statues, Buddha pagoda, and Sanskrit bells, which are just the remains of the Buddhist stone carving art of the Tang Dynasty. When I went there, I only had more than 40 minutes to visit, so I could not savor it. The location of the museum is just south of Banyuecheng ruins, diagonally across from the Wild Goose Pond.

    Ring That Bell

    I know I would have enjoyed the National Museum much more without as much rain. But on the day we were there it was coming down in buckets. Anywhere that provided shelter was a good place. I was ...
