Korea National Maritime Museum holds the special exhibition, “Dragon, the guardian of the ocean”, marking the 6th anniversary of the opening of the museum.

In East Asia a dragon has been regarded as the symbol of god or an emperor which rules the ocean protecting the good and banishing the evil.

A dragon is the only imaginary creature among the 12 gods of the Chinese zodiac

Especially this special exhibition is mainly focusing on the dragon as the guardian of the ocean.

Through the special exhibition featuring dragons beloved by the East Asian people and the symbols, we hope you can have a chance to grasp the dragon-themed culture.
