Korea Seoul National Museum

15 September 2011

Korean National Museum

The museum tried to fool me again. When I got there, the signs were still up saying CLOSED TODAY. But I suspected this was wrong.
Meanwhile an entire school group stood and pondered the sign in great confusion.
Luckily once I got to the museum it turned out they just hadnt brought the signs in from yesterday.

The museum was heavy on ancient pottery, calligraphy and maps, which doesnt make for good photos, so there arent many. I especially enjoyed the maps.

After the museum I returned to the Seoul Grand Park area to do the walk that I saw on the map, unfortunately, my camera went flat.
This caused great confusion as I had changed batteries in the morning, except I had forgotten to charge the battery (I rotate 3 batteries).
So you get no photos of the nature walk, there were trees, a path, a couple of streams, some butterflies, and some views, you get the idea.

On the way to the subway I spotted the only decent car I have seen in all of Korea. There are a lot of Porsches getting around, but they are all Cayennes or Panameras.
The actual Korean cars are starting to look decent, the latest Kia or Hyundai is far nicer looking than any new Japanese car.
Thats all the car talking I am going to do.

Korea-Seoul-National-Museum - This is the middle section of the two halves of the museum. Dissapointingly you cant work over that roof section to go between the two halves.

Korea-Seoul-National-Museum - Some sort of monolith, I have learnt that Koreans never really decided on a written language until recently.
