Long Description:
The Gunsan Modern History Museum covers the history of Gunsan's transformative role as an international trading port. The museum exhibits past images of Gunsan showing its rise and importance as a West Sea maritime distribution port.

There was a huge array of different exhibits to explore and discover. Over the three floors, the history of Gunsan is split into themes. The first floor contains the Ocean Distribution History Hall and the Theme Park for Children, which has the catchy phrase of ‘Curiosity Up! Imagination Up!’. In the Ocean Distribution History Hall, there were explanations of the history and purpose of sea trade and how it works. On display were a variety of objects related to and used in the trade. Handily, we had English language headphone guides to help us understand all the items on show. You can see the evolution of the equipment used as well as items from the daily life of South Korean citizens in the area during this era.

I thoroughly recommend the Gunsan Modern History Museum if you wish to gain a deeper insight into this port city and Korean culture.
