The Samsung Innovation Museum (S/I/M), Korea’s largest electronics industry museum, opened in 2014 and has since attracted over 440,000 visitors to its exhibits, which cover not just the history of Samsung Electronics’ creative products, but also the history of the electronics industry as a whole.
Since the worldwide pandemic, which has prohibited interested visitors from visiting the museum in person, S/I/M has been offering a range of online activities, including virtual exhibition tours and material tailored to children and teenagers.
From June through December this year, S/I/Dream M’s TALKTALK, an educational program for young people in Korea that had previously run offline prior to the worldwide pandemic, would be held online. The Online Dream TALKTALK program, which takes place every second and fourth Saturday of the month at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.1, allows students to engage in lectures about the history of the electronics industry, science, and technology.
Furthermore, the initiative provides young people interested in the sector with online mentorship sessions with 30 Samsung workers, allowing them to learn more about the sector directly from individuals who work in it.
Online Dream TALKTALK takes a’metaverse’ approach to participation, letting students to review what they’ve learned in lectures and workshops through True or False games and other activities.
S/I/M also launched a ‘Online Youth IT Workshop’ in March, as well as a number of other innovative online initiatives.
Since April, S/I/M has been offering an online tour service called Docent LIVE, which allows visitors to digitally explore the museum’s different exhibitions and rooms.
Participants in the tour program can choose from three different tour topics. Hall 1 depicts the history of the electronics industry from the 18th to the 20th centuries, while Hall 2 depicts the history of semiconductors, displays, and mobile devices, and Hall 3 depicts the evolution and guiding principles of Samsung.
On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., the Docent LIVE online tour program is accessible, and those interested can make a reservation on S/I/site. M’s Tours are provided in English, Korean, Chinese, Japanese, or Spanish for both individuals and groups.
