Located in Gyeongju, North Gyeongsang Province, South Korea, the National Museum of Gyeongju is home to relics of the Silla kingdom, of which Gyeongju was the capital.

Founded in 1945 as the Gyeongju Branch of National Museum of Korea, the present day museum was built in 1968. The museum was upgraded as "Gyeongju National Museum" in 1975 and has been under expansion since then.

The museum contains important items of national cultural heritage, including the Bell of King Seongdeok of the Silla Kingdom, several Silla dynasty era golden and guilt bronze crowns. It also holds many artifacts excavated from Anapji Pond and artifacts excavated from the Hwangnyongsa Temple site. Many holdings are displayed outdoors, a common practice in Korean museums.
