Seoul Citizens’ Hall is a space of the citizens, for the citizens, and by the citizens, where concerts, bazaars, art markets, weddings, conferences, lectures, workshops, and exhibitions are held. It includes an exhibition hall, where relics found during the construction are showcased, and also the Gungisi Relics Exhibition Hall, where the excavation site of Gungisi, an armory where weapons were made and stored during the Joseon Dynasty, is preserved.
