Situated in Juwangsan National Park (in Cheongsong, Gyeongsangbuk-do), Cheongsong Museum was opened in 1999 to promote the history and culture of the county and its nearby area. The three-story museum offers indoor & outdoor exhibition halls and archive rooms. The Indoor Exhibition Hall showcases educational material related to farming and customs of Cheongsong. Exhibitions - such as the Traditional Guest Room, Weaving Room, Items of Everyday Use, and Cheongsong Porcelain - offer glimpses of how people lived in the past.
The Outdoor Exhibition Hall reproduces a traditional tavern, Mulle banga (waterwheel), Yeonja Banga (a millstone operated by a horse or ox), Josan (a monument to ward off misfortunes and protect prosperity), and Seondol (natural stones used for worship), with which visitors can experience farm life in the past. Traditional totem poles (called Jangseung or Sotdae) await visitors at the entrance of the museum.
Exhibition hours are between 9 am and 6 pm (until 5 pm during winter). The museum is also surrounded by many tourist attractions: Wangbeodeul (grand willow trees designated as Natural Monument No.297) in Bugok-dong, Dalgi Falls, Cheongun Stream, and Songsaeng-ri Student Campgrounds to name a few.
