Samsung Innovation Museum, South Korea
Samsung Innovation Museum, Suwon-si, South Korea
Located about one and a half hours away from the heart of Seoul, the Samsung Innovation Museum is actually not just about Samsung. Five floors of exhibitions take you through a pretty thorough history of modern technology, from the discovery of electricity to the first transistors, from the first wooden barrel washing machines to the first black-and-white TVs, from the first massive mobile phones to the latest smartphones.
Expect, of course, a floor full of the latest Samsung products, but also a fascinating display of Samsung’s beginnings and early products. The SIM is open from Monday to Friday (reservations only), and on Saturdays, as well as national holidays.
