Souvenir Shopping at National Museum of Korea

When I travel, I usually buy some souvenirs for myself and for my beloved friends or family. I like items which are unique to that place. Likewise, when I go abroad and plan to meet friends, I bring presents which reflect Korean culture.

My favorite place to shop Korean souvenirs in Seoul is National Museum of Korea. National Museum of Korea itself is a great museum. So, what about enjoying exhibitions, and then indulging in shopping?

A huge souvenir shop is located on the ground floor of the museum. The shop sells paintings, sculptures, prints, stationery items, fridge magnets,  ceramics, scarves, books on Korea, folding fans, etc.

You can pre-check what to buy online, but unfortunately the site supports only Korean language. 🙁

I went there just a few days ago and bought five postcards and a file folder. Altogether, they cost about 5,000 won (Less than 5 USD). Items here have quite reasonable prices (I would say in general items here are cheaper than those from other stores).
