Seoul Museum of History Tours

The Seoul Museum of History charts the history of Seoul from the Joseon era right up to the present day. It was conceived in order to preserve and reinforce the cultural identity of Seoul and its citizens and to promote patriotism. The construction of the museum was completed in 1993.

The museum features a permanent exhibition documenting the history and culture of Seoul and its people, with displays in both Korean and English, plus there’s a large-scale model of the city for visitors to wander around. The museum also showcases themed temporary exhibitions and stages workshops, plus musical and cultural events.

Sitting outside the Seoul Museum of History is a section of the Gwanghwamun Gate, plus an old-fashioned tram that operated in Seoul in the 1930s.

Practical Info
