Until his death at a prison, Ahn Jung-geun remained a man of spirit as a true Korean. Ahn, who was well versed not only in the ideas of maintaining the peace of East Asia but also in international politics, still remains a paragon and a spiritual mentor of the Korean people who are living in contemporary times.
We have thought that it is our duty to reestablish a museum for displaying old relics and articles left by Ahn as the previous hall was outworn and smaller in size to come up with all the remains.
With the opening of a new museum, all the museum staff and executives including the president are fully devoted to developing anew this facility to a living example of inheriting Ahn’s spirit of peace and love of the nation. In order to achieve the noble goal, active participation of the people is prerequisite.
The Ahn Jung Geun Memorial Museum located on the vicinity of the Namsan Library, a major shelter in an urban space where the people can enjoy the beauty of nature in four seasons, will always greet the visitors. It will be meaningful for you to visit the museum with family members during leisure time.
I hereby express my thanks to those who made a precious and thoughtful contribution to the reestablishment of this museum. I hope that you show more love and concerns for the operation of this museum that has been newly reestablished thanks to the support of the people.
Thank you very much!
Cho Dong-sung, director general
The Ahn Jung Geun Memorial Museum
