HOME > Association Information > Introduction

The museum was established to preserve and inherit a country's politics, culture, society, and lifestyle. Today's museum has expanded its functions to include the educational sector, aiming to grow into a cultural complex center through concerts, theater drama, and opera stages. That's why museum is called 'a barometer to gauge the level of a city or a country's culture'. Museum of our times takes a regional centerpiece role by providing exhibition service, traditional and cultural education and family-oriented cultural places.

Public access to the museum is expanding through its active membership-based residential participation and volunteer activities.

The Incheon Association of Museums was established with the aim of strengthening the competitiveness
and capability of museums in Incheon Metropolitan City through mutual cooperative relations in this rapidly
changing era. Now, the development and management of museums do not belong to the founders alone.
With your interest in and support for our museums, they will continue to develop into a lively center of
Incheon. We hope that you remain interested in Incheon's museums in the years to come.
Thank you.
