Kimdaejung Nobel Peace Award Memorial Center Celebrates 1 Year Anniversary

 

Kimdaejung Nobel Peace Award Memorial Center located in Mokpo, celebrated its first anniversary yesterday.

The city of Mokpo constructed the memorial center last year to commemorate Korea’s first Nobel Peace Award Laureate, the late president Kim Dae-jung. The center showcases various exhibitions related to the former president Kim and his achievements during his political journey in Korea.

Exhibitions on display include some 4,800 historical relics and records such as his Nobel Peace Award medal, letters written while he was imprisoned for hosting gatherings for the democratic movement in 1970s and 80s, and domestic and international press materials that featured Kim’s story.

The two-story building consists of a media room, a souvenir shop, a cafeteria, exhibition facilities and a presidential office used by Kim.

The memorial center has welcomed more than 200,000 visitors to the exhibitions since opening in 2012.
