Information

The Bona Museum first opened as a craft arts research institution in 2003, and officially opened as a private museum in 2006. It devotes itself to collect, research, and exhibit cultural assets that carry Korean traditional beauty through the artifact's form, color, and line. The Bona Museum holds over 15,000 artifacts, dedicated to woman's accessories and various folk arts. It desires to showcase fine works of Korean art to acquaint internationally the refrained beauty of Korea. It is to share both the aesthetic sense and the taste of women in the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) and furthermore, introduce them to a young Korean generation who will pass on Korea's cultural heritage to the future generation. It wishes to have the young generation discover their identity through understanding the Korean traditional sense of beauty and contribute to new progressive thinking. As the meaning of bona (寶 ‘bo’ treasure; 娜 ‘na’ beautiful in Korean) implies, the Bona Museum will fulfill its duty to continuously display Korea's beautiful treasures and to become a place of sharing the natiion's heritage.
