    Since the opening of Line 3 in 1986, it has been at the threshold of a culture and arts region that
    was built around Gyeongbokgung - a historical cultural facility for the last 20 years. All the while,
    the museum's facilities have been improved to make visiting there a more comfortable and convenient
    experience.

    The management will make every effort to revive it as a space of contemplation and relaxation
    for citizens and enhance its cultural productivity through promotional activities that highlight its
    role as a public museum.
     

    Seoul Metro Museum

    Seoul Metro Museum, located at Gyeongbokgung station on Line 3, is a majestic cultural space within

    an information booth, lightening around exhibiting areas, CCTV & DVR, LED display panels, and

    security system installed and established a permanent security force to safeguard the museum.

    Hyehwa Exhibition Hall

    Hyehwa Exhibition Hall, adjoining university-avenue and Merronnier Park, is located in Hyehwa subway on Line 4. It is one of the most visited exhibition spaces by college students and people in their 30s. To provide a space where young people, with a bursting zeal for art and new ideas, could showcase their creations to the public, glass walls were installed on the waiting platform of the first floor of Hyehwa Station in last 2000. This allowed an independent space to be established that could be viewed from the outside.



    Hyehwa Exhibition Hall welcomes art enthusiasts who wish to experiment with new art forms in an open space, such as a subway. It also welcomes those who simply wish to show their art to the world. The hall is positioning itself as a cultural space thanks to its exceptional accessibility and popularity. It has become one of the most picturesque sites on university-avenue and has held some 40 or more exhibitions a year since its opening.



    In conjunction with Seoul Metro Museum in Gyeongbokgung station, the management will make every effort to revive it as a space of contemplation and relaxation for citizens and enhance its cultural productivity through promotional activities that highlight its role as a public museum.
