[Exhibition] The opening of National Daegu Meteorological Science Museum / The first weather museum in Korea

A very new science museum currently opened under the theme of 'weather' for the first time in Korea. ‘National Daegu Meteorological Science Museum’ is the name of it, which allows visitors to learn the principle theories and phenomena of the weather by offering in-person experiences.


















In the exhibition hall composed of 3 rooms, a guide explains what causes weather, how the weather affects people’s lives and so on. There’s a ‘3D theater’ that offers an interesting experience of standing up against typhoon and tsunami. In addition, a ‘weather service experiential class’ is prepared for you to manage a weather forecast task yourself.


virtual reality experiential program hall
The most interesting one is a virtual reality experiential program in which you pilot a plane going through the reproduced typhoon, Maemi, which hit Korea in 2003. Though it is a virtual reality, the force of typhoon you will meet is never easy to manage.









Outside the museum is made a meteorological science park. As the concept is 'meteorological science', the garden looks like a chart of high/low atmospheric pressure.
The museum opens every day except Mondays/10:00~18:00 and the admission is free of charge.

[Beautiful Daegu] The view of Dongchon Haemaji bridge seen through fish eye lens

The view of Dongchon Haemaji bridge seen through fish eye lens
Do you like sometimes look at the view in different angle like looking at the sight upside-down by hanging down from the horizontal bar? Interestingly, everything looks unfamiliar even the things are what you see every day. The view of Dongchon Haemaji bridge seen through fish eye lens is the same for me as well.

[How to get to Dongchon Haemaji Bridge]
-By subway: Get on the subway line 1 and get off at Dongchon station. Take exit 2 and walk toward the Geumho river around 50 m.
