Hello, the Buyeo National Museum, located about a kilometer from Buyeo Intercity Bus Terminal, moved the capital of Baekje from Woongjin, Gongju, Chungcheongnam-do, to Buyeo-gun in 538 and marked the Sabi era of Baekje for 122 years until Baekje fell in 660.
Excavation is still underway in downtown Buyeo, and you can see the colorful Baekje culture just discovered through the Buyeo National Museum. The Buyeo National Museum consists of four exhibition rooms and an outdoor exhibition hall.

It is displayed so that you can see the prehistoric culture of Chungcheongnam-do from the Bronze Age to the Sabi period of Baekje.

The historical culture of the Baekje period and the life culture of the Baekje Sabi period are introduced. Baekje Geumdong Daehyang-ro and Changwang Myeongseokjosa-ri, which were excavated from Neungsan-ri Temple Site adjacent to the Neungsan-ri Tomb in Buyeo, which are said to be representative relics of the Baekje period, are on display.

At the entrance of Exhibition Hall 3, there is a statue of Seosan Rock-carved Buddha called the smile of Baekje.The exhibition is divided into Buddhist art, foreign exchange, Baekje architecture, and roof tiles that show the outstanding metal Buddhist art of the Baekje period. The standing of Geumdong Maitreya and the standing of Geumdong Gwanseum Bodhisattva show the refined sculptural beauty and the soft smile of the Baekje people at that time.
