Gyeonggyojang House, Historic Site No. 465, was the location of the provisional government and the place where Baekbeom Kim Koo passed away. Seoul reproduced the historical site, Gyeonggyojang House, to use the area as an educational site. Also, the house exhibits the history of provisional government in order to see the history more clearly.
Restoration work includes the demolition of the inside that was turned into a hospital facility and embassy after he passed away in 1949. During the work, the remaining parts were restored to the utmost possibility. The other reconstructed parts are based on the Gyeonggyojang House floor plan written in Chosun and Architecture (8th edition in 1938). Visitors can see varied contents related to Korean provisional government history through relics, video, and information searching corners.
