Seodaemun Museum of Natural History is located in Seodaemun-gu in Seoul, Korea. The museum was planned and constructed by the Seodaemun District Office. After 6 years of planning and construction, the museum opened on July 10th, 2003. The purpose of the foundation is to preserve, to study and to exhibit geological and biological records about the local environment. The museum is organized around three main themes over three floors, and displays the history of nature and life vividly through various real specimens of minerals, rocks, and fossils (including dinosaurs, animals, and insects from all over the world), but also displays them with up-to date display technologies such as models, dioramas, and stereopsis displays.
These days I visited the museum with pleasant surroundings and enjoyed exciting sketch time in and out of the museum, appreciating the precious natural assets.
서대문 자연사 박물관은 도심 주변의  안산 기슭에 위치한 쾌적한 시민 휴식처입니다.
자연사의 문화체험과 교육을 통해 생명의 소중함과 함께 변화해가는 지구환경의 모습을 
생생하게 드로잉하며 입체적으로 느낄 수 있는 스케쳐들의 좋은 작업현장이라 하겠습니다.

와, 규모가 큰가봐요. 고래나 공룡을 실제 크기로 느껴볼 수 있을 것 같아요. 재연이 데리고 꼭 가봐야겠어요! 좋은 그림 즐감했습니다~

저도 박물관 건립에 참여했었습니다만, 지하는 수장고, 지상 3개층마다 테마별 전시장들이 있고 거대한 중앙홀은 시원하고 환상적입니다. 관람 동선도 자연스럽고 가족 나들이와 어린이 교육장~~ 스케치 학습 장소로도 훌륭합니다.

우와 첫번째 스케치보고 너무멋있어서 놀랐습니다.
대단하신 열정.

평소에 전시물로만 보아왔던 대상들이 실제로 스케치를 하면서 더욱 가까이 느꼈습니다. 실물스케치는 대화를 넘어서 드로잉 스킨쉽 같아요~~
