    Introduction
    The Coreana Art & Culture Complex is the largest museum in Korea exclusively for cosmetics and was created to preserve and promote beauty items and the make-up culture of Korea.

    Centered around the 53,000 beauty items collected by Dr. Yu Sang-Ok, one of the executive directors of Coreana Cosmetics. In particular, Space C museum sits right next to the Coreana Art Museum that features and curates modern art. The Coreana Art & Culture Complex contributes to the education and research of the nation’s cosmetic culture by presenting the history of women in Korea, including the exhibition of traditional make-up tools. In 2006, in commemoration of the 120th anniversary of ties between Korea and France, the museum held a special exhibition titled “Nature-like Beauty, Cosmetic Culture of Korea,” which attracted much attention and applause at the Center Culturel Coreen in Paris, France.
