  • The displays in all seven halls that span from prehistoric-Korea to modern day Korea are well set up. The grounds are spacious and the halls are spread out so even when the parking lot looks full...

  • Very well laid out and almost everything is in Korean and English. There’s plenty of parking (2,000₩) and entry is free. Well worth a day of exploring and learning about Korean history. Would highly recommend for my US military folks stationed here.
  • There’s a lot of cool places to visit in Korea . This independence hall located in cheonan is one of them. There’ll be a lot of people visiting this place locals and foreigners during weekends but don’t worry parking lot is huge. There’s also Coffee shop and restaurant in the area. Recommend to wear comfortable shoes if you wanna see the whole area.
  • The place I will introduce is the Independence Hall in Cheonan, which literally shows the process of Korea becoming independent. The admission fee is 2,000 won and it is not just an exhibition of relics, but an experience method using images and models, The independence process of our country is divided into zones, so you can see only the parts you want to see, or you can see them one by one. In addition, the Independence Hall can be joined by all ages, and there is a large square inside and outside the hall, so it is good for people who come with children to play. I felt like I was looking at this place and looking at a Korean history book, I think the history of our country shines so brightly that history cannot be missed to promote Korea. If you want to learn more about Korea, I recommend you visit this place!
  • Amazing place! So much to see and very nicely curated. Exhibits are in both Korean and English. 8 buildings in back of the main also with a live reality theater. You might get teary eyed walking through the various exhibits as some of them can evoke strong emotions as you experience Koreans vast history of achievements and it's humanitarian lows that were envoked upon the people of Korea. Mansae!
  • It's one of the most vistes places. Helps to understand the culture and history of korea. I have visted in Fall season and now in winter the things sees awesome.
