The  RAS - Business & Culture Club will offer a special tour of Dilkusha house at the Museum of Seoul History. 

American businessman and gold miner Albert Taylor came to Korea in the early 1900s. In 1917 he met British stage actress Mary Linley and they married. They lived until January 1942 in Seoul, mostly in a house called Dilkusha, located near the Sajik Tunnel. Mary Linley Taylor wrote two books about her time in Korea.

Recently, the Seoul Museum of History received a donation of photographs and documents from the Taylor family, and now there is a special exhibition on display. Come and join us as we look around it and talk about life in Seoul as a foreigner under the Japanese colonial administration.

Given everyone's tight mid-day schedule, please be on time, noon, as we will have to enter the museum as a group at that time. Should you arrive late, you may catch up with us at the special exhibition area. The Seoul Museum of History is located 5 blocks west of the Gwanghamun 4-way intersection.
