Visit the Living History Exhibition Hall & Daebul Hotel Exhibition Hall in Jung-gu, Incheon

 

Daebul Hotel

 

The Living History Exhibition Hall is an exhibition about the history of Incheon since the 1960s. It is a place where you can view old relics and spaces, and feel as if you have traveled back in a time machine. You will be able to revisit historical locations such as Incheon Station, Sanghoe, barbershop, and funeral home.

 

Living History Exhibition Hall

 

The first hotel in Korea, ‘Daebul Hotel‘, has been renovated by applying the ‘reconstruction’ method. Reconstruction of the Daebul Hotel was carried out with the preservation of historic facades and inner re-planning and structure replacement. The hotel a Western-style three-story building was built in 1887, due to the lack of lodging facilities for Westerners entering and leaving Incheon Port. The interior space of Daebul Hotel’s guest rooms has an old-fashioned feel that fits the Newtro trend. 

 

Black-and-white studio photoshoot 

Black & White Studio photoshop

 

You can borrow costumes and walk around the streets of Incheon. Enjoy the day with vintage and retro period costumes. You can even enjoy concept photography at the black-and-white photo studio, so make sure to capture the memories of that day in photos. 

 

Incheon Port – 19th Century Electric Car

(Special Option 20,000KRW/ 20 USD$  per person)

Eletric Car

 

This is a tour where you can listen to the story of the Incheon Open Port from a professional guide and take pictures while riding a 19th Century Electric Car through the streets and tourist spots of Incheon. Your guide will drive you and take you there, and you will get off at a tourist spot in the middle of the journey and take a commemorative photo for hidden stories and memories related there.

 

Due to the characteristic of the open port consisting of uphill and downhill slopes, it will be easier to ride the 19th Century Electric Car. This is a tour where you can enjoy while taking Instagram shots and listening to various stories about history and culture from an Incheon professional guide.

 

Jemulpo Club

Jemulpo Club

 

We will also be visiting the “Jemulpo Club”, which also appeared in the Korean Wave drama “Goblin”. Jemulpo Gurakbu is a building built in 1901, where it was used as a social gathering place for foreigners living in Incheon, such as the United States, Russia, and Japan. It is a two-story, Western-style brick building with a tin roof and various facilities such as a social classroom, library, billiard table, and restaurant. The exterior of the building is furnished with facilities suitable for social gatherings, such as a tennis court, which was rare at the time.

 

Ganghwa Island (Joyang Textile Cafe)

“Joyang Textile Cafe” is an old textile factory-turned cafe! The textile factory was first built in 1933, abandoned in 1958, and now reborn into a cafe. This retro-style cafe is full of vintage items from posters to chairs. As the cafe is remodeled after an old factory, it feels as if one has gone back in time, from the concrete ceiling to the photo exhibition of the old textile factory.
