The naval forces in the Joseon dynasty protected the sea. Korean peninsula is surrounded by sea on three sides so that Korea made an effort to keep public order from old times.

Jang Bogo built extensive maritime powers in the Three Kingdoms Period and Admiral Yi Sun-shin took active role in Japanese invasion of Korea in the Joseon dynasty.

Through this exhibition, you can see the mission and organization of the Joseon Naval Forces.
We hope to think about Korean navy's history and mission based on understanding of the Joseon naval forces with antique documents as written appointments, hand-over documents, written exercise order, list of local officers, etc.
