There are so many different museums in the world. But all these museums are connected with one thing — history! All these museums save a long-standing or even centuries-old history. Today we will visit a Korean Advertisement Museum!
A couple of weeks ago I was going home and I saw a very interesting museum ‘A museum of advertisement‘. I had a free time, so I decided to enter it and I really enjoyed it.
About the museum
The museum was founded in 2008 in Seoul by Korean Broadcast Advertisement Corporation. Museum founders say: ‘Advertisement is not plenty of promotion materials, it is information, it is art, it is entertainment.’ Personally, I would say that also advertisement is a culture.
The museum saves more than 120-years of history. Here you can find the first advertisement in Korea.
Entry to the museum is free. But now due to COVID19, you need to make a reservation online. But actually, you can do it right there in the museum.
Right after you enter the exhibition hall you will see a wall with Advertisement chronology. And along the wall different devices and equipment that advertisement creators used before.
The exhibition hall is well-planned. You smoothly can learn about the advertisement from the very beginning till today. Also, there are 2 video halls where visitors can watch video advertisements.
Here you can find all different advertisement channels: TV, radio, newspaper, banners, printed or digital advertisement, internet advertisement, etc.
Here is a poster of the very first advertisement in Korea.
The world-famous Korean corporation Samsung has a long history too. And here is one of the first advertisements of Samsung.
I think there is no museum where is no activity corner in Korea. I really like it because one thing is to look at posters, papers, and so on, but another thing is to be a part of it. Especially, for kids. All kids like interactions.
Korean Advertisement museum represents 120-years of advertisement history in Korea. Also, there is an education area, library, and other facilities that help to learn more about marketing, advertisement, and all other related areas.
Do you have an advertisement museum in your country?
