A private furniture museum in the northern quarters of Seoul.

The historic wooden furniture of the Korea Furniture Museum is distributed throughout 10 traditional hanok houses, and a palatial main building, in a village setting designed to illustrate the way the Korean nobility lived during the Joseon dynasty. Situated in the Seongbuk neighborhood, the bucolic compound first opened its doors in 1993 when owner and director Chyung Mi-sook decided to present her personal collection of some 2,500 furniture pieces to the public. Visitors should book several days in advance of their visit.
