    The Outdoor Exhibition, located in the front square of the museum, contains a variety of unique relics, including stone relics from the monastery site of Jukjuk-ri, Hapcheon; a three-story pagoda from Guyang-ri, Hamyang; and a Hwacha, mobile rocket launcher from the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1897).

Stone Relics from Jukjuk-ri Temple Site in Hapcheon, Gyeongsangnam-do

Various stone relics are displayed from this monastery site, which was established some time during the end of the Unified Silla to the early Goryeo Period.

Brickwork Platform from Jukjuk-ri Temple Site in Hapcheon, Gyeongsangnam-do

These fragments of a very rare style of platform, estimated to be from the early Goryeo Period, represent an important artifact for the research of Korean architectural history.

Three-story Pagoda from Guyang-ri in Hamyang, Gyeongsangnam-do

This structure, thought to have been made during the mid-Joseon Period, was used to enshrine sarira, the crystalized beads that are believed to be the remains of Buddhist spiritual masters.

Mobile rocket launcher (Hwacha)

A Hwacha, or mobile rocket launcher, was a weapon made during the Joseon Dynasty, which could fire up to 100 guns or gunpowder-propelled arrows, giving the Korean army enhanced firepower and mobility. Five different types of Hwacha were made in Korea, but the representative style was designed by King Munjong himself in 1451.
