Korea is surrounded by sea on three sides. On that account we were able to come across world by sea and dream of the future.

Greek poet, Homeros said “Sea is vast and fearful area where birds cannot reach although they fly for a year". However sea is the place we should pioneer. However people and the sea live together.

Various tools are required to go to the vast sea. Long ago, astronomical devices based on explorers' record as globe, celestial globe, map and astrolabe.

More detailed tools are used today in accordance with developed science, however the principle is not very different.

With these tools explorers and navigators dreamed of unknown world across the sea in the past, and now we are exploring deep sea and the ends of the earth.

Past expedition across the sea was led by Europe, but sea in the future is led by maritime science of Korea.

This exhibition is composed by 'beginning of expedition', 'expedition and the sea', 'the future of maritime science of Korea', and 'the safe sea'.

Maps and diverse tools to the sea and devices to overcome a danger are waiting for you.

We hope to dream the vast sea surrounding us through this exhibition.
