Jeju Aerospace Museum obtains certification as a safe museum


The biggest scale in Asia ... displaying 35 Air Force aircrafts



Jeju Aerospace Museum (JAM), run by the Jeju Free International City Development Center (JCD), said on November 28 that it has obtained KOSHA 18001 for the first time for a museum in Korea and is certified as a safe museum.

KOSHA 18001 is the domestic standard certification system that evaluates and certifies whether entrepreneurs reflect the safety and health policy on their management policy, specify the detailed practice guidelines and criteria, and implement and assess systematical safety and health plans periodically.

On December 8, a JAM official said, “We’ve obtained KOSHA 18001 certification after evaluation in three sectors – safety and health management system, safety and health activity, and interview with safety and health management manager - from Korea Occupational Safety and Health Agency. Taking this opportunity, we will make our best effort to prevent safety accidents and improve health environment for visitors as well.”

Meanwhile, JAM opened on April 24 as the biggest museum in Asia with a theme of aerospace and universe.

The museum is composed of Aviation hall, Space hall, Theme zone, outdoor exhibition area, observatory, etc. People can see the dream and history of humankind toward the sky and universe as well as the future of aerospace through various kinds of exhibitions and experience programs.

The first scene we meet at the museum is an aircraft displayed inside and outside the building. There are 35 (23 indoor and 12 outdoor) aircrafts which had protected Korean airspace including one actually deployed in the 6·25 war. Most of the aircraft displayed inside are recreated as they flew in the sky, hanging in the air at different heights and angles.

There is also a Korean Air Force Gallery on the first floor to show the past, present and future of the Air Force, which entered into an agreement with JDC and Jeju-do and donated those aircraft. It is a curiosity-stimulating space with “How Things Fly” where we can experience the flight principles through 40 working models.

At The Space hall on the second floor, “Curiosity”, the Mars rover, is displayed in actual size. There is the Space Station module in the corner as well.

We can travel outward into space at the Theme zone. Especially at Polaris, where 150 people can gather to experience 5D circle vision and enjoy videos with our five senses with the addition of special effects on a large 360-degree screen for more realistic images.

JAM has a three-floor building and a basement on the scale of 30,167㎡ in total, built in 329,838㎡ of Seogwang-ri, Andeok-myeon, Seogwipo-si, Jeju-do, at a cost of 115 billion won.
