National Museum of Korean Contemporary History

National Museum of Korean Contemporary History

The National Museum of Korean Contemporary History is a space where visitors can experience both cultural enrichment and participate actively in Korea’s historical dialogue. The museum is dedicated to passing on to the next generation the major milestones in Korea’s history from the nineteenth century to the present day, charting the remarkable growth made possible in the country through the resilience and integrity of the Korean people. It is here at the museum where we reflect on the past in order to open our minds to the possibilities of the future.

The museum is located on a site of historic and symbolic importance and neighbors other historical and cultural facilities. The museum building was once a government building home at different times to the Economic Planning Board and the Ministry of Culture, Sports & Tourism. It was recently renovated with eco-friendly, “green” materials and energy-saving technologies to reflect today’s environmental mindset.
