꼭두박물관

The highlight of our day! We discovered a museum while Shanna and I were looking for interesting things around 혜화/대학로. It’s called 꼭두박물관 (click here for more info) and the entrance fee is 6,000 for adults and I think it’s worth it!

Basically 꼭두박물관 is a part of DongSoong Art Center and display 꼭두 (figurines/puppet) as historical relics through various themes and methods accdg to the site and I the theme that is being displayed right now is about “Afterlife Guardians”. There’s another room that displays the reinterpretation of the 꼭두 which you’ll see in the following videos that we filmed.

 



Not gonna lie though the museum was awesome it gave me chills. I never thought there’s actually a museum about afterlife and hell but I guess it only shows where we’ll go if we die O.o I’m not even sure if this is a Korean myth or a cultural belief.

If you guys are visiting Korea this is a great place to see! Here’s a map from Naver.

  2. Thanks for putting the videos up. I had a good time watching them.

    I like how both of you introduced the place! The Q&A made it so interesting and cute~ like a documentary. I feel that I’m watching a show from TV, like that of a variety show!

    • Thanks for the comment! Ahaha it was my first time to do vlogging so it was kind of fun for us to introduce this and that.
