Former confucian educational instuation May 04, 2010
The Koryo Museum was once a confucian educational institution, teaching the confucianist studies to children of nobles, so they could become officials in the Koryo Government.

The museum features 12 main buildings and 6 additional ones which feature all kinds of objects which are related to the Koryo area of that time.

We visited the complex for about an hour, visiting the halls like the Myongryun Hall and the Taesong Hall. The site looked well preserved. The paintings we did see were in my opinion very good and detailed, but most likely copies of the original ones.

As all the visits to the various sites were included in the tour, it was unknown to me about the costs. That's why I made them free.
