2002 FIFA World Cup Museum
Points of Interest

The 2002 FIFA World Cup was a monumental event in the World Cup's illustrious history. Not only was it the first World Cup to be held in Asia, but it was also the first, and only, time two countries co-hosted the World Cup. Korea had a surprisingly incredible run in the World Cup. They reached the semi-finals where they lost to the eventual tournament runner-up, Germany.


Scouting Report

The museum is set up to guide people through the soccer teams' facilities. Along the way, there are plenty of soccer relics, with an emphasis on the World Cup tournament, on display.

Extra Information

Keep in mind that you are in Korea. You are visiting a Korean museum. The majority of information appears in Korean. There is enough English to follow the gist of everything, but if you want to squeeze the most out of that 1000 won ticket, you should spend a few years studying Korean first.
