About This Book

The National Museum of Korea first opened in 1945, the year when the Korean people won their liberation from the Japanese colonial rule. Since then, the museum was involuntarily relocated several times. In 2005, the museum finally opened at its permanent home in Yongsan, Seoul. This book was issued on the occasion of the reopening of the National Museum of Korea in Yongsan, Seoul on Oct. 28, 2005. All the objects reproduced in this book are part of the National Museum of Korea's collections. This book, prepared for the new museum, is based on new materials and updated scholarship, and consists of readable texts and fine reproductions. The book features many masterpieces and national treasures such as images of the Silla golden crowns and belts. The vivid photos and the detailed explanations will help readers understand Korean historical collections. Dr Yi Kun-moo, the director of National Museum of Korea, hopes that this book provides a useful guide for those who treasure Korea's cultural heritage and visit the museum.
