The Citizens’ Hall, which is a fresh new space for citizens, is a place where not only performances, exhibitions, forums, lectures, and markets are held and hosted, but also policy forums and citizenship education courses. It is also a place where learning and communication activities are conducted every day in order to empathize with the citizens and hear their opinions.

With the exception of closed days, an average of 5,369 people per day visited the Seoul Citizens’ Hall. Specifically, 137 couples had their simple and unique wedding ceremonies in the hall. Citizens rented the hall for exhibitions, performances, workshops and others events 2,946 times, allowing themselves to host event at low cost. A total of 5,968 people participated in the event “I have something to say” and made their voices heard.


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.
