This museum was set up in 2001 and includes a collection of models made by Renault-Samsung.
Samsung Transportation Museum is Korea’s first automobile museum established in April 1998. It intends to pay tribute to the history of automobile that has shaped the 20th century civilization. The main role the museum serves is to introduce and make the automobile culture available to the general public.
The World Automobile Museum has arranged its cars according to their time period to help visitors understand the flow of Korean history, making it an ideal place of education for children. Kids can even try getting a "driver's license" ... complete with an (easy) test and a driving experience in tiny 2-seater electric cars.
