At Seodaemun Museum of Natural History, located in central Seoul, visitors will be advised to go straight up to the third floor upon arrival, where motion pictures of volcano eruptions and lava flow, as well as exhibits of fluorescent minerals -- all marked by vivid colors -- encourage them to keep track of how the Earth came into being, simply by walking through the exhibition.
These are among some 45,000 specimens the museum has collected in the past two decades, in the building with a total floor area of 6,950 square meters.
Seodaemun Museum of Natural History reopened in September 2021 after a three-month renovation. It is Korea‘s first-ever public museum of natural history run by a local government. The museum is closed on Mondays.
