Osan ri Prehistory Museum

This is a public museum in Osan-ri, Sonyang-myeon, Yangyang-gun, Gangwon-do, at the Osan-ri Prehistoric Site (Historic Site No. 394). It was set up to keep the Osan-ri prehistoric site and nearby historical remains in good shape and to make copies of them. These are South Korea’s neolithic remains, and excavated items will be displayed.

The Osan-ri Prehistory Museum is all about preserving, studying, and showing off artefacts from the Osan-ri Archaeological Site in Yangyang. The Neolithic period was about 8,000 years ago. These artefacts were found while public works were being done in the wetlands near the museum. The collection of nearly 40,000 artefacts, which includes raised-design earthenware, stone arrowheads, and net weights.The artefacts show that the Neolithic people living in Osan-ri fished, hunted, and gathered.

The museum is split up into areas for storage, exhibitions inside and outside, and research. Indoors, in Exhibition Hall 1, there is a diorama of the Neolithic way of life in Osan-ri, including fishing, gathering, and making pottery. In Exhibition Hall 2, you can learn about the prehistoric culture of Yangyang, Goseong, and Gangneung, which spans from the Neolithic to the Iron Age.

In the second exhibition hall, there are 320 artefacts from Osan-ri site, Chodang-dong site, and Goseong Muam-ri site, all essential prehistoric sites in the Yeongdong area. Next to the museum, there is a reed habitat with a 470-meter-long trail. It offers different educational programs, such as the chance to look at local artefacts and experience what life was like for Neolithic people. It also has a museum culture school.

There are models of Neolithic cottages, paths for exploring, and Ssangho Wetlands. The Ssangho Wetlands are called “the dancing reed bed” because the reed bed rises above the wetlands like an island and moves with the wind.
