Natural History Museum

The Kyung Hee University Natural History Museum opened its doors in 1978 to fulfill the University's founding spirit of "creating a civilized world" through research in nature. Six floors of rocks, fossils, animals, and plants collected by faculty of various fields for the past 60 years have been arranged for the easy understanding of the different stages of evolution. The museum also offers education for visitors on the importance of understanding and practicing conservation. Kyung Hee has been collecting natural history specimens since the 1940s, and the museum currently houses over 90,000 pieces, including many species that are already extinct in Korea or have been endangered for the past decade.
