Introduction
Sejoong Museum consists of 14 exhibition chambers (1 indoor and 13 outdoor exhibition venues) and over 10,000 stone sculptures excavated from across the nation.

Main types of statues include: stone Mun/Muin Seok (generals/scholars) that guard the spirits of the deceased at the graveyard; the comical Seoksu, which protect the King’s tomb; Jangseung & Beoksu, guardian spirits that prevent evil spirits and enemies from invading the village; Sotdae that are tall enough to look out for the safety of a village; Mangbuseok (faithful wife stone), a legendary faithful wife who became a stone after waiting and waiting for her never-returning husband; Dongjaseok, a cute child monk that grabs the eyes of passersby; Dol Hareubang, a symbolic stone sculpture of Jeju Island; and Hyojaseok, which commemorates a filial son.

Other pieces include Buddhist relics such as stone pagodas and lamps, a horse-pulled millstone, well stones, stone pots, and other daily items used by Koreans from ancient times.
