Seoul attractions-Seodaemun Prison History Hall
Don’t worry we are not telling you to go visit a real prison. This Seodaemun Prison History Hall is a place you can see?Korean people’s struggles during Japan’s colonization of Korea. You will get a sense of true horror of infliction on the Koreans during their?possession. The Seodaemun Prison History Hall presents the history of struggles Korean people had to achieve Korea’s independence and democracy with such indomitable spirit.
The prison was built near the end of the Joseon dynasty in the early 1900s, seven of the 15 original buildings have been intact and? some of the cells and areas restored to become exhibition halls.
Memorial hall for those who fought for the nation
Underground torture chamber
This space exhibits the cell structure and visitor may personally enter into the cell to experience the life of imprisonment.
This is a sports facility for prisoner that built in a way to prevent prisoners from having a conversation one another.
You can see the underground cell in this building.
All in all, I recommend you to visit ?this museum if you want to indirectly see and feel the sorrow and wound that Korean people had in the past in a way to achieve independence.
