Introduction
The Ojukheon House (오죽헌) gets its name from the many black bamboo trees that surround it. It was here where Sinsaimdang (1504~1551) lived and where his son Yulgok (scholar and politician of the Joseon Period) was born. It was built during the time of the 11th King of Joseon, King Jungjong (1506~1544), and remains one of the oldest wooden residential buildings in Korea. It was designated as Treasure No. 165 in 1963 and has been maintained by the descendants throughout the generations.

Inside Ojukheon there's the Yulgok Memorial Hall, Mongryongsil, where Yulgok was born, the household shrine called Munseongsa, and the entrances called Jagyeongmun, Sajumun etc. There is also Eojaegak, which was built to preserve the inkstone and Gyeokmongyogyeol (a book written by Lee-Lee in 1577 for those beginning their studies), mementos of Lee-Lee.

Beside Ojukheon, there is the Gangneung Municipal Museum where you can see relics from the prehistoric age and other various historical materials from different time periods.
