Korean Traditional Cultural Facility at Incheon

Welcome to Korean Traditional Cultural Facility at Incheon International Airport, where you can find Korean traditional culture at Incheon International Airport.

Korean Traditional Cultural Facility at Incheon International Airport is a cultural space for promoting our beautiful traditional culture to overseas visitors visiting Korea, and operates a traditional culture experience hall, in which Korean traditional life culture can be felt, a Korean traditional culture center, in which Korean craftworks are exhibited, and a traditional craftwork exhibition hall, in which Korean traditional craftworks are exhibited.
The traditional culture experience hall that has been operated since 2004 is a very popular place in the airport that about 60 thousand foreigners have visited, and various Korean costumes, and traditional play such as Pogurak (a ball throwing dance) and Tuho (an old Korean game of skill that involves throwing arrows (or in this case sticks) into a jar or vase) can be experienced. Thanks to the popularity of the traditional cultural experience hall, the Korean traditional cultural center consists of a craftwork experience corner, in which traditional craftworks such as Dancheong Buchae (ornamentally painted fan), knot-tying pockets, and jewelry boxes can be made to bring them as souvenirs, and a masterpiece hall, in which works of Korean intangible cultural properties and traditional craftsmen are sold.
In addition, various genres of traditional performances including Sanjo, Silnaeak and Minyo are performed on a stage formed in the traditional cultural experience hall and the Korean traditional cultural center, and all visitors can participate in all kinds of experiences for free.
A traditional craftwork exhibition hall called “Korea House” located in the transfer lounge exhibits intangible cultural properties and e xcellent craftworks of traditional craftsmen, so that visitors can feel the exquisiteness of the Korean craftwork culture and passion of the craftsmen through appreciation of beautiful craftworks.
