The Yonsei University Museum at Yonsei University has a history dating back to 1924 when the museum began as a course focusing on pre-historic history. Donations were received and the museum expanded and grew over the years. A lot of the artifacts were destroyed or lost during the Korean War. In 1985 on the 100 year anniversary of the foundation of Yonsei University, a new museum building was planned and opened in 1988. This building is the current building of Yonsei Museum. The museum has permanent exhibition halls focusing on art, pre-historic history, animals and plants, Goryeo and Joseon dynasty and more.
