Korea National Maritime Museum describes a new special exhibition
"The will of the people who lived in the 15th century drove the navigators to unfurl their sails and move ahead into uncharted waters. We call this period of time the Age of Great Voyages that is symbolised by the spirit of challenge and passion of the people in search of new sea routes. These people living in the Age of Great Voyages connected continents through sea routes and led the cultural exchanges between the Eastern and Western civilisations.
"This exhibition was designed to promote that spirit of challenge and initiative for humanity to move ahead in the open seas and share moments to think about our roles to lead a New Age of Exploration for the 21st century."
