The Jeonju History Museum opened its doors in 2002, showing the public the long and fascinating history of Korea. The museum is divided up into different exhibits that are permanently on display. The first exhibit is the Donghak Farmer’s Revolution (the 1894 uprising against colonial Japan). This event played a very important role in the development of the city of Jeonju. The second main exhibit area is dedicated to remembering the organized people’s revolt (의병운동), in which citizens spontaneously came together to fight the Japanese invasion. There is also a special area dedicated to the independence movement where Korea gained its freedom from Japan. There are many other exhibits dedicated to key uprisings and other such important events in Korean history. Various documents and materials are on hand for viewing, as well as a special exhibition room which has themed events.
