The museum is centered around the many beauty items collected over 40 years by Dr. Yu Sang-Ok, one of the executive directors of Coreana Cosmetics. In particular, Culture Space C, which opened in 2003 in Sinsa-dong, showcases costmetics in a multitude of themes, and even sends exhibitions overseas to promote Korean cosmetics on a global stage.
