The Museum was build to excavate and collect historic relics and related materials to enhance academic research and understanding of our ancestors’ culture. It preserves folk arts on the verge of extinction that serve as sources for valuable research. In particular, we are excavating and investigating the historical archaeological remains of Gyeonggi province including excavation of remains in the Pungnaptoseong Fortress, and we hold a running exhibition with various themes every fall.
Purpose of establishment
Since its establishment in March 1991, the Museum aims to collect, organize, preserve and display artifacts related to Christian history, history, archeology, art history and folklore, thereby promoting research and understanding of our traditional culture. In particular, it focuses on collecting Christian history data scattered throughout the country and organizing it systematically. In addition, we are making efforts to develop and preserve the local culture through investigation and excavation of Gyeonggi province as well as the ruins of each age in the country.
