Ganghwa History Museum

On our last day on Ganghwa Island we went to the history museum. The museum opened in 2010 and is located on a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The museum tells the history of Ganghwa island from past to present. The museum is somewhat small, but also includes a theater. While everything is in Korean a decent amount of the exhibits also have English, and English is an option for the history film in the theater.


The area is an UNESCO World Heritage Site because of the dolmen. Dolmen’s are historic stone tombs/markers similar to stonehenge. I was told this one was suppose to be a monument/ grave marker for the village king. There are over 30,000 dolmen in Korea.
