- School tours are offered to grades 5–12 on Mondays between 9:40 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. when the Museum is closed to the general public. Tours are approximately eighty minutes. Regular school group admission prices will be charged for students and required chaperones. This extraordinary exhibition of works of art representing the entire span of Korea’s Joseon dynasty, is a rare opportunity for American audiences to see some of Korea’s artistic masterpieces, most of which have never traveled to the United States before. Drawn from the National Museum of Korea’s collections and supplemented by objects from public and private collections in Korea and the United States, this comprehensive survey will included approximately 150 secular and religious objects including paintings and calligraphy, books, ceramics, metalwork, sculpture, lacquer, furniture, costumes and textiles, and photographs. The exhibition is organized by five key themes: The King and His Court, Joseon Society, Ancestral Rites, Religious Beliefs, and Joseon in Modern Times.
