The Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) is scheduled to open Seoul Robot & AI Museum (Seoul RAIM) in 2023 as a hub to provide various industry 4.0 tech experience and educational programs.

Seoul RAIM is a specialized science museum functioning as a cutting-edge center and cultural facility that will lead Industry 4.0 in the northeast. The museum will serve as a science and culture network connecting universities, institutes, companies, researchers, and citizens reinvigorating the region.

The SMG held a groundbreaking ceremony at the construction site near Chang-dong Station on May 20. Robots developed by six domestic enterprises delivered contributions in every moment of the event by practicing disease control and prevention protocol, providing guidance, moderating the event, breaking ground, and giving performances.
The first floor of the museum will be designated as an exhibition space to hold a multitude of exhibitions on a massive scale, equipped with AR/VR rooms, educational spaces, and labs.

Citizens of all generations can experience Industry 4.0 tech through exhibitions and educational programs. The museum also offers the opportunity to experience cutting-edge scientific technologies such as robotics, AR and VR, holography through close collaboration with businesses, not to mention an in-depth course that allows you to encounter state-of-the-art robotic technologies.

Korea’s northeast region is concentrated with the most technology institutes and universities. The museum will benefit from the regional advantage, forge a cooperative system between universities, institutes, and businesses in the region, and nurture creative, comprehensive, and high-skilled professionals. The goal is to create an organic cycle between exhibition, education, and research to create a hub for science and culture that connects researchers and citizens.

“We will put our utmost effort into making Seoul RAIM not only represent the northeast region, but also become a landmark of South Korea,” said Mayor Oh Se-hoon.
