History

A science museum was first established in Seoul in October, 1926. After independence from Japan in 1945, the museum was officially named the Seoul National Science Museum. During the Korean War, the museum was destroyed. In 1960, the museum was rebuilt near Jongmyo Shrine. The museum was then moved to its current location in March, 1962.

By 1990, over 10 million people made their way through the museum.
