Gungsan Tunnel History Exhibition Hall
Gungsan, at the end of the Pacific War, was an underground tunnel that was excavated during the Japanese occupation, to store items such as weaponry and ammunition, and materiel.
It is said that it was a place to monitor Gimpo Airfield and used as a type of headquarters during air strikes. To build this place, residents of nearby areas were forcibly mobilized as Bogukdae. Excavation work was also suspended as Japan was faced with the prospect of the liberation of Korea due to its defeat in the war.
Since then, it has been used for various purposes.
In 2008, a number of nearby residents reported that they had discovered an underground tunnel and were under construction to create an experience exhibition hall. A large rockfall occurred in some sections, and an entry prevention device was provided, and the tunnel was closed and managed. In 2018, an exhibition hall was created at the entrance to give a bird's eye view of the inside of the tunnel.
This place has been reborn as a space that combines distinctive historical, educational, and regional characteristics .
