As you enter the Electric History Hall, on the right you will see a diagram of the history of electrical energy. The major inventions of each era were placed directly under the chart, so I could see the science theory and inventions better and better understand. The Electric History Museum helps understanding by placing electrical inventions everywhere.


From the Korea Electric Power Corporation of 1898 to the Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO), the Korean power industry was divided into four periods and presented in a circular format.

Six major inventions from around the world have been selected and placed among the Electric History Museum. That’s six inventions you see below.


  1. Edison effect : the Edison effect is the release of electrons from a metal or semiconductor surface that has been heated at a high temperature.

You can see the evolution of lighting equipment in Korea from modern lighting to modern lighting.

Special images (Magic Vision), which show various kinds of electric living equipment related to electricity supply in the 1940s and 1960s, and which show the importance of electricity savings and value of electricity, and the power generation of Korea Electric Power


You can also experience electro-mediation meter corners.


So, if you turn it so hard, the light bulb comes on and the motor turns, so it’s a lot of fun.



The museum consists of a modern history museum located on the third floor and an electric energy experience center on the second floor.




It was a free museum for children’s education. It was convenient to visit by subway.

It was a great place to visit when I was looking around the gallery on the first floor. It was a great time to appreciate electricity.
