Introduction and Exhibition Information on the Yangsan Museum

Introduction

Since opening on April 11, 2013, the museum is designed to protect local cultural properties excavated from Yangsan, support historical research, offer learning space for local residents, meet demands for knowledge and information, and exhibit diverse cultural contents.

The museum is located in Bukjeong-ro 78, Yangsan, where the Bukjeong-dong Ancient Tombs (Historic Site. No.93) and Singi-dong Ancient Tombs (Historic Site. 94), two major cultural heritages of Yangsan, are located.

The museum consists of five floors (one underground and four above-ground floors with a land area of 13,063 ㎡ and a floor area of 5,328 ㎡). The façade of the museum adopts the shape of the dolmen in Singi-dong and curvilinear lines are seen from the eaves of Daeungjeon Hall of Tongdosa Temple, while the rotunda in the middle of the museum visualizes the old fire signaling mound in the Wonjeoksan Mountain. As such, the museum embodies the rich history and culture of Yangsan.

The exhibition halls at the heart of the museum feature the History Hall (590㎡), Ancient Tombs Hall (450 ㎡), Children’s Historical Experience Hall (173 ㎡), Special Exhibition Hall (298 ㎡), and the 3D Visual Hall. Each exhibition hall makes it easier for visitors to trace historical trends as Yangsan’s culture and history is arranged by theme and by period.

In addition to the cultural relics, the museum showcases various models, dioramas, and videos that allow visitors to experience the history and culture of Yangsan freely.
