Government Building sights in South Korea
- Sort by:
This small private museum has lots of English descriptions and is dedicated to South Korea's first president, Syngman Rhee (1875-1965). Jailed by King Gojong for his political activities, later he became an independence leader and the Japanese colonial government put a price of around ₩300,000 on his head. He was South Korea's president during the Korean War and up to 1960 when he fled with his Austrian wife to Hawaii after widespread public demonstrations against his rule.
