Great museum. English subtitles let you understand the Silla empire in good detail. Nicely laid out design with ample room to roam. Probably allow at least two hours to see the halls and grounds. Well worth the time.

The Geyongju National Museum is well worth a 2 to 3 hour trip as an introduction to the history of the Silla Dynasty and the many historic sites around Gyeongju.

Free attraction so really why not go. But honestly it is one of the best museums we’ve seen in Korea. There are numerous buildings and a kids museum onsite. There are detailed explanations in English to explain the history and significance of some of the artifacts. Definitely must check it out if you are in Gyeongju.

Really informative exhibits with lots translated into English. Amazing collection from the Silla and great to learn more about the tombs in the town and the ancient history of the region. Really interesting and definitely worth a visit while in Gyeongju

This period of history was new to me and I found the Korean artifacts in the museum amazing. I particularly loved the gold crowns, the jewellery and the Buddhist relics. Wow...... what wealth they had years ago. One of the buildings was closed, but we enjoyed the gardens and saw and heard the huge Divine Bell of King Songdok.
