Modern Tourism Archive
When did tourism start in Korea? The history of tourism can be seen from the Three Kingdoms, the Joseon Dynasty and the Japanese colonial area. In 1899, there was the Gyeongin railway, in 1905 the Gyeongbu railway, and in 1906 the Gyeongeui railway opened. With the opening of railways tourism started. Especially since the March 1st Independence Movement, tourism flourished as the Japanese advocated cultural policies. If we look through tourism guidebooks there are materials such as maps and descriptions of main touristic sites such as Gyeongsung, Busan, Gyeongju, Pyeongyang, Kaesong, Geumgang Mountain. Tourist souvenirs depict traditional Korean forms and characteristics. This section consists of archives from the Modern Design Museum and we hope this provides a journey to the past.
