The National Museum of Korea hosts the night programs until 9 p.m. every Wednesday and Saturday. Visitors can participate in a special program "Conversation With Curators" in which curators answer questions and explain about the exhibitions.

For this month, the program offers various exhibitions under 18 themes including Unified Silla sculptures, Korean Buddhist sculptures and Goryeo royal ceramics. Those who want to take part in the curator's session can apply at the information desk on the first floor of the permanent exhibition hall from 6 p.m. Admission is free.

The Seoul Museum of History stays open until 9 p.m. everyday. It also offers various programs alongside the ongoing exhibitions.

The museum hosts a free concert on the last Friday of every month. This month, the Zeloso Wind Ensemble will perform in the museum lobby, Dec. 26. The group was founded in 1994 and consists of amateur musicians. Like the musical term, zeloso, all the members dedicate themselves to playing music with zeal and enthusiasm.

Excavation of Sam Cheon Sa Ji
Now until February 22, 2009
The most noteworthy achievement of the excavation was the collecting of 250 fragments of the memorial tablet of Daeji who was the great authority of the Buddhist order, Beopsangjong, in the early Goryeo Kingdom. Through its restoration, his life and the history of Buddhism between the late Goryeo and the early Joseon kingdoms are depicted.
