To Be a King in the Joseon Dynasty

The exhibition tells the story of the culture of the Joseon dynasty and the legacy of the royal court.
The story is explored through such treasured objects as a king's seal and jade book, royal placenta jars and a large screen painting that celebrates the birth of a crown prince.

The Joseon era began in 1392 with Yi Seonggye (reigned 1392–1398), a general victorious over invaders of Korea. Yi led the country after the fall of Korea’s Goryeo dynasty and was enthroned as King Taejo, whose royal family went on to rule for more than 500 years, one of the world's longest dynasties.
