With a pencil, you can make the creative ideas you have in your head come to life. By making the thoughts that come from our hands and mouths into black written symbols, we test the limits of memory.

More than 3,000 different kinds of pencils are on display at the Museum. They are arranged by their themes or by the countries where they were found. The Museum also shows pencils that famous people like, like literary critic Ur-ryung Lee, novelist Hoon Kim, and designer Hyun Kim. It also shows how the tip of a pencil can be used to make creative works. Also, the colorful collections of pencil collectors will show you how each pencil is different.
