It's All About the Money

The Bank of Korea Money Museum (한국은행 화폐박물관) displays various Korean and foreign currencies, dating from ancient times to the present day. It also exhibits materials relating to finance and the economy and holds special exhibitions from time to time.

The museum was the former head office of the Bank of Korea and it is a designated National Historic Site. The museum's architecture has a kind of French Renaissance vibe to it. The interior is quite a sight to behold as well.
