The National Lighthouse Museum is the sole national lighthouse museum in Korea. The purposes of this museum are to contribute to the historical and cultural values of lighthouses and maritime safety and to publicize maritime spirits. From the museum, the blue East Sea and sunrise can be viewed. The museum is located in the area that corresponds to the tail of a tiger in the topography of Korea. The National Lighthouse Museum was established in order to permanently maintain and exhibit facilities and devices for route signs, which have disappeared due to the development of industrial technology and period changes. The museum is an experiential and learning place that allows the viewers to experience the exhibits by directly seeing, listening, and touching them. It raises awareness of the importance of route signs and marine products and awakens people’s dreams.
