  • We are not the Museumsgänger, but had a great time in this museum. The contemporary history of Korea is represented in various ways. Documents, photos, videos, larger objects such as E.g. a car, human figures, and much more is exhibited in this museum. There are also short texts in English. As a beginner in Korea's history we found well established us in the end. The Museum is open every day and offers free admission. No go!
