Thank you for visiting Ojukheon/Municipal Museum

Since the ancient times, Gangneung has always been busy with the footsteps of explorers.

Many explorers have visited to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Gwandong shaped by the East Sea and Baekdudaegan Mountain Range, and they still flow in even today to adore the teaching of Shin Saimdang and Yulgok Yi I.

After Saimdang was appointed as monetary figure in 2007, explorers from all over the world came in to visit ‘birthplace of world’s first mother-and-son monetary figure,’

In Ojukheon, your whole body will be immersed in the serenity of warn sunshine in the backward fully seated with the sound of black-stemmed bamboo swaying by the wind.

You will also get the chance to enjoy the benefit of looking deeply into your life while meditating on the history.

Walking out from the precincts of the Munseong Shrine, you will reach a  traditional Korean-style (called hanok) building Ojukheon Municipal Museum which reflects the pure character of people in Gangneung.

It is a place that shows aspects of Gangnueng’s unique culture which has been shaped according to its own geopolitical and human-social environment from prehistoric period to today.

Municipal Museum will tell the cultural and historical story of Gangneung from the hearts of those who have lived here since long long ago.

At the end of the road passing through the museum, there is a Yulgok Personality Education Center which opened up in November 2016.
