The National Hangeul Museum opened on October 9, 2014 in order to promote the linguistic and cultural value of Hangeul, the most reasured heritage of Korea.

It is an exhibition space dedicated to expanding our understanding of Hangeul and experimenting with the convergence of Hangeul and various other fields.

The NHM is also a playground where children can explore the principles of Hangeul, and an enjoyable place offering diverse educational opportunities for people of all ages and nationalities, with a strong emphasis on communication and empathy.

At the same time, the museum acts as an advanced research facility that collects and analyzes Hangeul data from Korea and abroad, which then serves as the foundation of exhibitions that proclaim the cultural diversity and future value of Hangeul.

The NHM is an inclusive cultural space with exhibition halls, Hangeul library, auditorium, rest areas, and a beautiful garden leading to Yongsan Family Park.

In sum, the National Hangeul Museum is a garden where Hangeul culture blooms.

We will continue to strive to make the museum an exciting destination where you can see, hear, and explore the story of Hangeul, engaging with its past, present, and future.
