Daegu Modern History Museum

Museum in Daegu

Located within the fabulous former Joseon Siksan Bank building (check out the brickwork) which dates to 1918, this very educational museum gives you the low-down on modern Daegu, concentrating on the city's 20th century history: its colonial past, architecture, literary heritage and contributions to democracy. The CGI-simulated bus journey around early 20th century Daegu is only in Korean, but is still fascinating.
