Founded in 2006, the Jeju International Peace Center, which is one of the subsidiary bodies of the Jeju International Peace Foundation with a background of ROK’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Unification, has been developed as a symbolic place for peace education, training, and exhibition.
The Center features many exhibits of cultural heritage, records of international heads of state who have visited the Jeju Island, materials on the Nobel Peace Prize winners and many other archives related to world peace.
