Introduction


Boasting over 600 years of history, The Bukchon Cultural Center is situated inside the traditional Bukchon Hanok Village, a narrow series of roads between Gyeongbokgung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace, and Jongmyo.

The Bukchon Cultural Center immerses visitors in a traditional Korean atmosphere as it is centered between two of Seoul’s main royal palaces. A traditional experience hall and hanok-style restaurant were recently built inside the complex, presenting a more enjoyable experience for all visitors.

The Bukchon Cultural Center is a traditional Korean-style building called Hanok Gaok and not only provides a genuine traditional Korean atmosphere, but also offers cultural programs that educate visitors on Korea’s history and traditions. Classes are also available with lectures lead by specialists covering a host of topics, and special extended lecture programs that last anywhere from 3 to 6 months. Registration can be made over the phone after selecting the lecture of your choice. However, be aware that all classes are conducted in Korean only, so you may need to bring a guide or someone who will be able to translate for you.
 

Programs Available for Foreigners

Supported by City of Seoul, Bukchon Cultural Center offers diverse seminars, which enable visitors to learn about traditional Korean culture and hanok (traditional Korean house) in Bukchon. These seminars focus on preserving hanok in Bukchon and promoting hanok culture to the public. Led by organizations related to traditional culture and craftsmen, these seminars are diverse and professional. International visitors are welcomed. In addition, diverse cultural seminars are run every day in the four rooms of the center so that visitors can attend any seminar upon visiting the center.
