National Museum of Korean Contemporary History (대한민국역사박물관)
We recently had a family day out and went to this museum. I hadn’t been before but I was glad that we went. It’s a great overview of Korea’s modern history. Although I was familiar with much of this history, it was interesting to see in a chronological order and to see artefacts from historical events.
Many people get interested in Korea through Kpop and Kdramas and don’t realise Korea’s interesting but sometimes very sad, past. In order to understand Korea now, it’s important to understand what has happened to Korea.
This museum is really easy to get to and the staff were so nice. Even finding Yul’s toy that he lost even though it was closing.
