In traditional Korean society; the suffix -kan was added for places used for making, storing food, and making side-dishes, such as Chan-kan, Sura-kan and Got-kan. Thus, we named our museum Kimchikan, in the hope that the museum will display diverse aspects and stories of Kimchi, and enable visitors to feel, experience and enjoy it.
Kimchi is listed as one of the healthiest foods in the world, and our museum has been broadcasted by major networks such as BBC, NHK and CNN. At 2015, our Kimchi Museum became the only Korean museum to be selected as the world's top 11 food museums by CNN.
