Mokpo Modern History Museum [목포근대역사박물관] is located in the city of Mokpo’s [목포시] neighborhood of Daeui-dong 2(i)-ga [대의동2가], around 3.5 hrs south of Seoul by public transport, and about 4 hours by car. This 1920s brick building — the museum’s first of two buildings (1단) — heralds back to the Japanese colonial era, when it was known as the Japanese-established Oriental Development Company’s (동양척식주식회사) Mokpo branch, and the former Japanese Consulate (구목포일본영사관). It is now designated as Jeollanam-do Monument No. 174.

The museum is located in walking distance ca. (10 min.) to/from Mokpo Station [목포역] and Seosan Sihwa Alley [서산동시화골목].

Note that an admission fee is required for entry.
