The Kimchi Field Museum in Seoul, Korea is a museum whose mission, since 1986, is promoting and educating visitors about Kimchi. The small museum is located inside the COEX shopping mall.
Originally established in 1986 by Pulmuone Inc., one of the largest food production companies in Korea, in Pil-dong, Jung-gu. In 1988, the museum was moved to the COEX (Convention and Exhibition Center) to promote Kimchi and it's rich history.
In 2000, the museum was renovated to extend the museum area and improve its facilities for visitors in anticipation of the third Europe-Asia Meeting in Seoul.
