Welcome to the Exhibition
The Gongpyeong Historic Sites Museum is an in-situ museum that comprehensively preserves the city remains excavated during the urban environment improvement project in their original location. To commemorate the first anniversary, the museum is hosting its first special exhibition titled Geumogyecheop, an Album of Calligraphy and Paintings Celebrating a Gathering of the Uigeumbu Inspectors. The exhibition introduces the roles and activities of the State Tribunal (Uigeumbu), the highest judicial institution during the Joseon period (1392-1910). Uigeumbu was located across the street from the museum’s present-day location, in what was then the Gyeonpyeong-bang District. A geumogyecheop is an album of calligraphy and paintings, printed and shared with colleagues during an initiation ceremony for new Uigeumbu inspectors. The exhibition also presents geumogyecheop from different time periods. By learning about different geumogyecheop documents, we hope this exhibition provides an opportunity to better understand Uigeumbu and the Joseon government in general.
