RAS National Museum of Korea: RASKB lecture-visit
We are exploring the possibility of offering a monthly in-depth tour of one portion of the National Museum of Korea with an English-speaking member of their staff. The first such visit, to the ceramic galleries, will be held on Wednesday February 22, starting at 7:00 pm. There is no charge but it is open to RASKB members only. Those wishing to attend should send an email to royalasiatickorea at gmail.com as soon as possible, also indicating if you would be interested in a regular monthly program of such visits.

It is possible to sign up for our emailed Newsletters (domestic and overseas) through links in the Membership section of our home page www.raskb.com

We welcome suggestions for other possible activities, as well as lectures and excursions
