Citizens can now learn about Korea’s cultural treasures on the new Korea National Heritage Online portal which provides access to integrated digital cultural data.

Run by the Cultural Heritage Administration (CHA), it brings together information collected from existing subsidiary websites and also has 1.8 million new pieces of data on the national heritage.

The portal is part of CHA’s initiatives to support the administration’s ‘Government 3.0’ agenda to promote sharing, openness, communication and cooperation. It has said that it will go all-out to produce, put-together and provide high-quality content to the public.

The portal’s search functionality allows users to dig out digital content that is otherwise hard to find, including detailed interpretations of cultural assets, excavated relics and research data.

Visual material including original images and video clips provide viewers with a better understanding of Korea’s history and culture.

The portal’s four sections include the Cultural Heritage Exhibition Service which is an online museum with 3D simulations of artifacts on exhibit at 12 museums nationwide. Others are Cyber Heritage Tour Service, National Memory Heritage Service and Cultural Heritage Learning Service.
