Bokcheon Museum opened on October 5, 1996 and has helped inform the public of the significance and excellence of regional culture ever since. Bokcheon Museum gives people the opportunity to learn first hand all about the ancient Busan area. On display are remains found in the extraordinary Bokcheon-dong Tombs. (Historic Sites 273)
A variety of excavated remains and styles of tombs give us a wealth of information about the mysteries of the little known Gaya Kingdom.
These fascinating archeological relics also provide significant resources to help prove the influence of Korean culture on that of ancient Japanese culture.
Our Museum has investigated and researched continuously Korea's ancient cultural assets, including Bokcheondong Ancient Tombs for the last six years.
As a result, they have revealed much of the history and culture of Busan and the Gaya Kingdom.
It has also helped to ensure that Bokcheon Museum may serve as a place of historical education.
By preserving and protecting our traditional culture, which has been largely forgotten by modern society, we are striving to increase public awareness of our historic treasures and to further develop our regional culture.
