INTRODUCTION OF THE HISTORY MUSEUM

The “The Museum of Sexual Slavery by Japanese Military” is the world’s first museum that has the main subject of sex slaves. It was established on August 14th, 1998 with the purpose of showing people what the Japanese military did during the war, and vindication of comfort women and educating the next generation.
The museum, which has two floors and a basement, was built with the money donated by private organizations and civilians. The museum shows testimonials by comfort women from Korea and abroad and also has related documents that prove what happened during the war, much of which Japan denies publicly.
The museum has a replica of a comfort house where the comfort women lived, and also the remains. It also has drawings that are drawn by the comfort women, so that the visitors can have better understanding of how comfort women lived and felt during the war
The museum publishes and distributes information booklets, using the documents, pictures and other data stored in the archive. We also maintain a website in order to disclose the truth about the harm comfort women had during the World War II by Japan.

The History Museum will continue to inform everyone so that history will not be forgotten
