Jajangmyeon Museum

43 China town-ro, Bukseong-dong 3(sam)-ga, Jung-gu, Incheon, South Korea

Jajangmyeon Museum, at the edge of Incheon’s Freedom Park, shows that the city has something going for it besides war history. This is a museum about noodles: not just any noodles, but the Korean specialty of black soybean noodles. Here you can learn about the history of the noodle and its manufacture—and even “the influence and value it effected on Korea.” Sometimes tiny, highly specialized museums are the best way to learn about a culture; they capture the details of life the culture wants to make sure are never forgotten.
