Saemunan Village originally stood on the land where Donuimun Museum Village now exists, after opening in 2017. Saemunan Village was filled with restaurants established for office workers working nearby. The area was to be dismantled and turned into a park, but as the area was acknowledged for its historic value, it was reborn into a museum village through Seoul-type urban rehabilitation, keeping its original buildings and history. Visitors can feel the 100 years of history while looking around the Donuimun Exhibition Hall with periodic history and records of life related to Donuimun, hanok (Korean traditional house) facilities offering experiences of traditional culture, and the nostalgic space preserving memories of the 1960s-80s.
