The Seoul Yangnyeongsi Herb Medicine Museum was established to preserve and pass on the history and knowledge of traditional Korean medicine. Fittingly, the museum is located across from the Seoul Yangnyeong Market, one of the most famous oriental medicine markets in Korea from which approximately 70% of the nation's oriental medicine is distributed. The museum collects, manages, and stores many artifacts and materials to exhibit. Visitors will be able to see everything from the herbs and plants used in traditional medicine, to antique medical records and tools. Admission to the museum is free.
