Situated in Songhyun Park, the Sudoguksan Museum of Housing and Living illustrates the daily life of people living in daldongnae, or impoverished hillside areas. Visitors can experience what life was like for these residents in the 1960s and ’70s as they wander through replicas of a barbershop, a small sundries store, and a communal water supply area, among others. The museum also gives visitors the chance to play traditional games, change coal briquettes, and try on old-fashioned school uniforms. The exhibits not only provide a look into years past, but also beautifully showcase the poor, but close-knit communities who worked together to overcome the trying times of the era.
