They always term Korea’s 20th-century history “tumultuous”… but that is an understatement! Even European nations suffered less violent upheaval and overly rapid changes. This nation has recently opened a new and first “National Museum of Korean Contemporary History.” It attempts to display the country and its people’s history in a comprehensive and structured way, a great place for a few hours of concentrated education and viewing remarkable artifacts. The exhibits do not have much English explanation, and the various possible interpretations of the events & personalities displayed can differ wildly – and so it is better to go there with a reliable & chatty expert guide! We ran this tour last spring, but in three hours managed to only cover the 1876-1960 Halls – this time we will focus on the “Development of the Republic of Korea” (1961-1987) and Modernization and Korea’s Vision of its Future (1988 onward) sections.

Our guide will lecture us through most of what happened, providing context and multiple possible points-of-view. Dramatic stories will be shown and told of Brutal Dictatorship, Rapid Development, Democracy Movement, Olympics and Opening to the World, Success and Collapse, Sunshine and Betrayal…

Diese Tour findet auf Englisch statt und wird zusammen mit SIWA durchgeführt.
