See & Do Attractions


Donuimun Museum is a new cultural space constructed from old restaurant buildings located in the old neighborhood of Saemunan. Originally built as residential homes back in 1960, these buildings were used as restaurants from 1990 to 2000, some of which included Italian restaurant AGIO and Korean restaurant Hanjeong. While preserving the architecture of the old structure, the buildings were reinforced for safety during their renovation into exhibition spaces.


Located in a central location within Saemunan surrounded by Seoul City Wall and the walls of Gyeonghuigung Palace, the spaces inhabited by AGIO and Hanjeong hold great historical and cultural value. When portions of Gyeonghuigung Palace Wall were discovered underground, the site has been transformed to preserve and display the remains.  At Donuimun Museum, visitors can learn about the culture and history surrounding the area around it.
