Seoul Baekje Museum highlights the history and culture of Hanseong (18 BC-AD 475). Seoul was once part and the capital of the Baekje Kingdom.

You will find various artifacts of Baekje period that can vividly describe that culture of Korea.

Some of the useful facilities include a walking-tour map, a free app, U-Exhibition Guides, and videos that explain the exhibits.

Using the walking-tour map will let you trace other Baekje Kingdom's sites.

The Museum was built to resemble a ship of Baekje in honor of Baekje Kingdom.

The exterior view of the Museum resembles the outline of Mongchon earthen fortress. The ship-like shape symbolizes the Hanseong-Baekje dynasty's maritime power.

Brief Historical Background

Among the historical artifacts, the Museum looks after the Earthen Fortification in Pungnap-dong, ancient tombs in Seokchon-dong, and the ancient tombs in Bangi-dong.
