Jinju National Museum opened on November 2, 1984 as the representative work of the architect Kim Sugeun, embodying the shape of the traditional wooden tower.

It was originally the institute which introduced the culture of the Gaya Dynasty and research and investigation of the archaeological parts of the Western Gyeongsangnam-do. But when it was opened in 1998, it was transformed into a historical museum about the Japanese Invasion of Korea because it is located in Jinjuseong Castle whice once was a ferocious battlefield during the Japanese Invasion of Korea in 1592.

On November 19, 2001, Duamgwan was opened to exhibit the donated cultural assets of the late Kim Yongdu, a Korean Japanese from Sacheon. And the History & Culture Room was established on December, 2008 to introduce the history and traditional culture of Gyeongsangnam-do.

Local Folk Museum

Regional Tradition Center

On the way to Jinjuseong Castle along the Namgang river, the symbol of Jinju, you can find a small gallery on the second floor of the Culture and Tourism Center. It is small but the exhibits in the gallery are very important so it can not be replaced by any thing.

The Museum usually recalls the ancient household items or farming tools made from straw and bamboo, but the Local Folk Museum is a little different.

The Museum is the only Jangseok (metal materials that are used to make wooden furniture) specialized gallery, displaying Jangseok made and used from the Joseon Dynasty era to the late 20th century. It was established based on the tenacity of the whole life of Taejeong Kim Changmun. He was fascinated in the beauty of the Jangseok even though no one acknowledged the value of it and for 40 years he had collected traditional furniture and household items that were replaced by western furniture that came in to major use. And he used his own house as a gallery until 1998, then donated all of his collections to Jinju City (that is why many Jinju citizens still call the gallery Taejeong Gallery).

Jangseok is not valuable in the market as an antique, but it has a high value as an item of beauty of our ancestors who lived with nature and loved nature.

Also, almost all of these Jangseoks were used in real life only 40~50 years ago, so it stirs up nostalgic memories to visitors and reminds young visitors that not only very old items have the value of antiques, but the items that were used for daily life can also be cultural assets.

Today, there are around 80,000 Jangseoks, 20 pieces of wooden furniture, 17 traditional household items and Jangseok making tools etc., and 1,000 traditional household items are in storage. The existence of Jangseok specialized gallery is the pride of Jinju, the City of Culture · Art · Education.
