History & Culture Hall

In 2008, Jinju National Museum opened its new History & Culture Hall in order to expand the scope of its exhibitions and reaffirm its role as a regional-based national museum. The purpose of this hall is to effectively convey the long history and culture of the Gyeongsangnam-do area by displaying and explaining the representative tangible and intangible assets of the region.
