FEATURES
The Republic of Korea Pavilion consists of the main exhibit, a traditional tea house and a shrine-pagoda. The main building houses products of modern Korea, and there is an unusual harp-shaped auditorium for performing Korean artists. A ramp leads from the exhibit to the tea house where gracious Korean girls serve delicacies and tea, characteristic of their native country.
