In September 1988, the museum opened as an affiliate facility of Hallym University.
For efficient education, we execute data gathering, investigation and research about history, archeology, folk customs, arts, crafts, and the excavation of remains in the Kangwon area.
Furthermore, the museum will be the mainstay of Kangwon local development research, through excavation projects, historic relics index research, and research-paper publishing.
projects, historic relics index research, and research paper publishing.
Excavation, purchasing, and donations established our collection of relics.
We have purchased around 1500 archeological pieces, such as earthen vessels, stoneware, metallic vessels, and folk-craft articles. We have also excavated about 700 relics, which are possessed by the nation, and exhibit these relics in the museum.
Our Personnel have donated some of the relics. By opening our material to the public, we are trying to improve research in the areas of archeology, history, and the humanities.
