  • Located in the immediate vicinity of the Gyeongbokgung Palace. In the best traditions of Korea, free of charge, with wi-fi, air conditioning and clean toilets. Visiting casually, I really was hooked the basic idea: show an example of how South Korea was revived after the war and deprivation. Somehow immediately imagine emotions Korean boy who came here. Show a devastated country and under awnings-learn people to in the future to ensure the flourishing of the country. Korean scientists from around the world return home, intending to work for the good of the country. Motivated people, seed, krupinočke create your world. First results: textiles (go into a small room, a motion sensor is triggered, the movie begins as Korean women worked strekoča for sewing machines), Gold Star, car Hejdaj on the machine. Infinite graphs show GDP growth for all positions. The Hall of Presidents. Table behind views of the Royal Palace. About each President of interactive story-just click the button. Also about music in this room can divide for a long time. Born proud of country, it bursting breasts. The last room. On the big screen fly balls wishes, each one-photo Museum visitors. Little lucky Koreans. Photographed and I, too it's all inspiring.
