Tourist guide

Jeongseon Art Museum is famous for its remodeling episode with a broadcasting program titled “Love House” in 2001. It has a long stretch of green grass in front of the art museum. There is an auto camping site at the entrance of the building. Right in front of the museum, there is a valley, which is all surrounded by mountains, providing a good place to take a quiet rest in summer. It displays many works of ceramics and calligraphy art inside the building, as well as kiln facilities and sculptures outside the building.

While staying overnight in the auto camping site, visitors can forget about any big and small worries in reality and spend time leisurely as if they became old classical scholars.
