The Museum of Silhak

In the late Joseon Period, a new school of thought began to spread around the capital city. Its core principle was to study practical knowledge, accept foreign influences, and seek reform, as opposed to formal and unpractical studies. Such form of thought was called silhak (literally meaning “practical studies”). The Museum of Silhak features the movement that pushed the late Joseon to make drastic reforms. Silhak-related materials and relics are displayed so that visitors can understand Silhak’s historic value. Visitors can also learn about the lives of important Silhak scholars who changed the course of Korea’s history
