NSD HeadquarterdotMission Museum
The Northern Asia-Pacific Division opened the NSD Mission Museum to commemorate God’s guidance for the last 100 years and to serve as aprecedent for the present church. When you enter this 200m² museum, you can find six glass pillars that displays the beginning of the Adventist Church in several countries in NSD territories. Many relics tracing the history of the Adventist church are exhibited. For example, traditional costumes, currencies, appliances, pictures and other valuables of each country can be seen.

The museum has four sections which provide explanations of the beginning and present conditions of mission work in each country through the use of photo albums, paintings, and handwriting scrolls.
At the right side of the Museum, you can see 1000MM related materials including pictures of major activities of 1000MM, T-shirts, and Maranatha magazines. Especially the knife and the scythe that the first batch missionaries used to explore the jungle, and bows and arrows that native people in Irian Jaya used, vividly convey the passion of missionaries and their rough lives in mission fields.
At the PMM section, you can see PMM missionaries who were sent to encourage foreign mission and to develop mission work in northeast Asia. News and photos from each country where missionaries were sent to serve are exhibited. Included in the display are text books that missionaries studied during a one-year language training course which shows their fervent mission spirit.

There is also a picture of Pastor Oberg who was sent to Korea as a missionary in November, 1908. He established the foundation of mission work in Korea by serving as a teacher of Euimyung School, a president of Sahmyook College, a chief editor of the Korean Publishing House, and a president of the Choson Conference. A manuscript of an autobiography by Pastor Kuniya Hide gives us a deep impression as well.

Missionary traces for the expansion of the gospel work from the past to the presentare meaningful. Photos of an evangelistic meeting in the latter era of the Choson Dynasty and a missionary leaving for Manchuria by carriageare very interesting, too.

In addition, the museum has a multimedia room where you can watch DVD productions containing activities of PMM and 1000MM missionaries. Other items of interest are the missionary’s trunk which was used by Chinese Missionary Lee during his mission trip and the first couch in Korea made from an oak tree and used in the Korean Publishing House for a long time. The Northern Asia-Pacific Division plans to commemorate the history by continuously receiving donations of mission-related materials and to make this museuma special place for mission work exhibitions.
