    Introduction
    "If you are prepared to fight to the death, you will live. If you avoid battles to preserve your life, you will die." - Nanjung Ilgi (War Diary of Admiral Yi Sunshin)

    The statue of one of the best naval commanders Korea has ever known, Admiral Yi Sun-sin, was installed at Gwanghwamun Square to celebrate the 465th anniversary of his birth. On April 28, 2010, The Story of Admiral Yi Sunshin was opened in the basement of Sejong Center to commemorate his life and accomplishments. Located next to The Story of King Sejong, the exhibit is divided into eight experience zones further focused on 12 themes related to Admiral Yi's life, ranging from determination and devotion to loyalty of country and countrymen. The museum uses the latest in digital technology to bring this great hero to life. Another great attraction to the museum is the turtle war ship made famous by Admiral Yi shrunk down to 55% of the real size. Despite the down-size, the ship is still big enough for guests to board and row the oars, with a digital display of the ocean waves playing on moniters all around for a fun 4D experience.
