  • Information
    Introduction
    Pohang Steelworks was built at Yeongilman Bay from 1970 until 1981 to shift the focus of the country's growth engine from the agriculture-oriented primary industry of the 1960s to the heavy chemical industry. The site holds historic significance. At the POSCO Museum, one can learn the history of POSCO that grew into one of the world's most competitive companies in just 30 years, as well as useful information about steel manufacturing. A bus tour of the large steelworks is a popular choice for incentive tours.
