From Incheon Station, we took the bus to the amusement park on Weolmi Island, but there weren’t very many people there yet since we were so early. So we decided to visit some other places first, including the Museum of Korea Emigration History [EXPIRED LINK REMOVED: https://mkeh.incheon.go.kr/icweb/html/web63/063]. (Visit in Google Maps.) I didn’t manage to remember to take a photo of the outside of the building, but we did find a variant of Myunghee’s name on the list of the first 4,700 or so Koreans to emigrate to Hawaii back in the first years of the 20th century.
