Donghak Agricultural Revolution Memorial Hall

Although “Kabo Donghak Agricultural Revolution” that had started from an uprising of the peasants in Gobu in January of 1894 failed with thousands of victims, it is considered as an uprising that had shaped the modern history of Korea.  The revolution was also the biggest resistance of the mass in Korean history that had tried to abolish the feudal system and to fight against the foreign invasion.

The Exhibition Hall was built as Korean traditional thatched cottage.  There are offices, supply office, 1st floor exhibition room, 2nd floor exhibition room and planned exhibition hall.  It is used to heighten the spirit and understanding of Donghak Agricultural Revolution.

 

Baek Jeong Gi Memorial Hall

 

Baek Jeong Gi, the righteous, devoted his life to resist against Japanese Invasion, recover our own sovereignty where freedom and equality is guaranteed, and to build a peaceful and harmonized world.  He fought against the Japanese with the only wish of saving his country from Japanese.

We have built the Memorial Hall and shrine to pay a tribute to Independence Movement Leader Baek for his sacrifice to save our country and for the spirit that he has shown us.
