Plan enough time to learn intimate detail about Silla's glorious history. There are an exhibit hall for Silla's history, art, Buddhist culture, and more exhibits outside. There is a coin locker on the ground floor (you can take the coin back). Museum is now free of charge. The opening hour will be changed to 10am since July, because the museum won't close except 2 days per year (Lunar New Year's Day, Chuseok).

Local from Gyeongju

As Gyeongju is one of the most historic, if not the most historic city in South Korea, as the old capital of the Silla Dynasty - there are many treasures to see. A lot of these treasures are at the Museum, which gives you a good taste of Korean history, it's culture and how it has developed throughout history dating all the way back to the stone age. There are some beautiful relics, Buddha statues, paintings and plenty information to feed your curiosity.

You can see a lot of the things that were taken out of the Shilla Dynasty tombs in the area. It's quite a good museum.

This museum has many artifacts and information of the surrounding areas of Gyeongju, which is a hub for culture of Korea. It is not quite extremely big, but it does have a nice view around. One thing I do like Korea is love of design, the buildings here exemplify that.
