Cheonggyechoen MuseumFree: All time

The Cheonggyecheon Museum was established in September 2005 to commemorate the completion of the Cheonggyecheon Restoration Project, a two-year restoration process that played a pivotal role in Seoul’s future vision of an environment-friendly urban space. The museum offers visitors the chance to learn about the stream’s turbulent history, from being buried underground to being restored. It is comprised of a permanent collection exhibition room, a temporary exhibition room, and an auditorium and classrooms for presentations and various cultural activities. Be sure to go across the street from the museum to see the reproduction of the destitute village homes and stores that used to be along the bank of the river.
