The Museum of Korea Emigration History

▶ About the Museum
Since the epoch of the Three Kingdoms, as a pivotal role in international maritime interchange, in the late 19thcentury and early20th century Incheon was the last homeland soil on which 121 immigrants to Hawaii sugar cane farms in 1902 and immigrants to
South American countries like Mexico and Cuba in the early 1900 set foot.

In 2003, on the 100thanniversaryofAmericaemigration,Korea'sfirstMuseum of Korea Emigration History was established to admire the pioneer life of our ancestors in other countries and also to communicate the traces of those to posterities.

After opening the museum in 2008, we hold yearly special exhibitions through active research based on emigration-related materials owned by overseas Koreans. Also, for the citizens of Incheon and the general public, we are offering social education programs to
promote the rich heritage of Korea's emigration history.

We hope this will be an opportunity to have a systematic collection of about 150 years of Korean emigration history. Furthermore, we hope to have the past, present, and future coexist through a network of domestic and overseas Korean communities.
