The Bank of Korea Museum is a banking museum and former headquarters of the Bank of Korea, the central bank of the Republic of Korea that also issues the country's banknotes. It was built in 1912 and was originally supposed to be Korea's central bank's head offices but its purpose changed during the construction and it was the head office of the central bank of Korea during the Japanese occupation instead. It was finally reverted to Korean financial control after World War II ended. It continued this role until 1987, when the Bank of Korea moved to a newer adjacent building, and was converted to a banking museum in 2001.

  • Bank of Korea headquarters (1912-2001)
