The Seoul National Science Museum
first opened its doors to the public in 1945. It was destroyed during the Korean War (1950-1953)
and was later rebuilt at its current location in 1972. The museum features a range of exhibition halls and hands-on programs offering
visitors an opportunity to experience the principles of science. In addition,
the programs focus on nurturing the creativity of children and helping children better understand science.
