In addition, around 80 descendants of the chief executives of the Provisional Government added meaning to the event through their presence as well as Jeong Yong-geun, Chief of the Chungbuk Provincial Police, and officials from the Heritage of Korean Independence and the Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs.

The opening ceremony began with a commemorative speech by Governor Lee, followed by congratulatory remarks from distinguished guests. The event then proceeded to planting a commemorative tree, unveiling of the signboard, and a tour around the memorial hall.

The Korean Provisional Government Memorial Hall is located on one side of the Cheongnamdae Korean Provisional Government Square (formerly used as a golf field). It has a total floor area of 2,393 m2, consisting of one basement floor and two ground floors. It exhibits various records and relics related to the establishment of the Korean Provisional Government and its activities, offering a Korean Provisional Government-themed photo zone and interactive programs as well.

On the first floor of the memorial hall, there are two exhibition halls and seminar rooms.

In the Exhibition Hall 2, visitors can find records of the 4,000-kilometer-long perilous journey that the Korean Provisional Government took from Shanghai to Chongqing, the Charter of the Provisional Government of Korea, and records of its independence movement activities such as Taegeukgi with Writings and Signatures of the Soldiers of the Korean Liberation Army.

The seminar room can accommodate up to 60 people, which can be used for various purposes including meetings and education sessions for organizations and groups. On the second floor, there are Planned Exhibition Hall and a book cafe.

The Planned Exhibition Hall shows records and photos of the activities taken by 17 key members of the Provisional Government originally from Chungcheongbuk-do, including Sin Chae-ho and Shin Gyu-sik, with the theme, “People of Chungcheongbuk-do Who Led the Provisional Government of the Republic of Korea.”

In addition, there is a book cafe where the visitors can relax and read books related to the Korean independence movement while enjoying the view of Cheongnamdae overlooking the Provisional Government Square and Daecheongho Lake.

After taking a break in the book cafe, visitors can find a variety of experience facilities and media room on the basement floor. In particular, the diorama photo zone that reproduces a part of the Korean Provisional Government Office in Chongqing is expected to become a popular place among the visitors.

In the Experience Exhibition Hall, a range of interactive programs can be enjoyed such as the “Save the Independence Activists” game where visitors free independence activists trapped in bubbles by throwing balls. There are also “Digital Sketch Pop” where visitors can color characters printed on papers and scan them to see the characters walking around in a big screen and “Keyword Touch Wall” through which visitors can learn famous quotes from the chief executives and experience them.

Lastly, in the Media Room equipped with an extra-large screen, visitors can learn about the footsteps and achievements of the chief executives through a video titled “Meet the Unwavering Spirit of the Chief Executives of the Provisional Government of Korea” which shares stories of each chief executive.

In the vast Korean Provisional Government Square that unfolds in front of the memorial hall, statues of the eight chief executives of the Provisional Government from former president Rhee Syng-man to Kim Gu can be found. Visitors can walk around the vast square covered in grass and take pictures with the chief executives.

Governor Lee Si-jong commented, “The Korean Provisional Government Memorial Hall is a meaningful space where we can learn about the history of Korea. It will be a place where people can experience the noble spirit and sacrifice of the independence movement leaders and learn about the Korean history.”
