The weather became warmer than early February, but it's still cold outside. We usk Seoul members met at an interesting museum for urban sketching last weekend. Seodaemun Museum of Natural History is the first public museum of natural history in Korea, located in Seodaemun-gu, Seoul. Opened in 2003, the museum displays the origins of life on earth through a variety of real specimens of minerals, rocks and fossils, and through models, including life size models of dinosaurs, from all over the world.
A few years ago I visited the famous museum several times and sketched a lot of exhibits in my spare time. The museum was crowded with children, their parents and student group at all time. Most of all, the exhibits of dinosaurs drew attention from visitors overwhelmingly. I sketched and colored the dynamic scenes inside the museum and some exhibits including large dinosaur skeletons with an "inquiring mind".
서대문 안산기슭의 공공 자연사박물관은 산 교육장이자 가족쉼터로서 일품입니다.
지구의 탄생부터 생명체의 기원, 인간과 자연의 관계를 생생하고 실감나게 재현한 모습을
무궁무진하게 스케치하며 탐구할 수 있는 "전천후 소재박물관"이라 하겠습니다.
