Visiting children will be given a lecture about Korea’s ancient history as well as crowns and official hats. They will learn about how these hats were used and have a chance to touch and wear replicas of the gold crowns and attire of the Three Kingdoms.

They can also see the replicas of accessories worn in prehistoric and ancient periods at the Children’s Museum inside the National Museum.
