Lamp Museum



Description
During the past fifty years, the director of this museum personally collected over 400 Oil lamps and candlesticks. They are displayed in chronological order: Three Kingdoms Era (18B.C - A.D.676); the Goryeo Dynasty (918-1392); and the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). They are also arranged according to usage, whether they were used in main rooms or guest rooms or Kitchens. The museum has 1story below and 4 stories above.
Under the theme of "Lamps in our Lives", the 1st floor has four rooms exhibiting lamps that were used by our ancestors. On the 2nd floor, exhibit room #5 displays lamps by period, historical significance, and shape. Room #6 showcases beautiful lamps and personal possessions of the general public. The Sangwudang in the underground floor provides plenty of room for various cultural events including stage performances, art exhibitions and symposiums.
