[Daegu Bangjja Yugi (Korean Bronzeware) Museum] The history of Korean yugi at a glance!

Daegu’s attraction that boasts a beautiful scenery! We welcome you to Bangjja Yugi Museum located at Palgongsan~
As a museum specialized in Bangjja yugi, it opened its gates in 2007 to preserve and pass down Bangjja yugi, our proud cultural heritage, and its manufacturing techniques.

Its major collection is the 275 types and 1,489 pieces of Bangjja yugi that Lee Bong-ju, a brassware artisan who was proclaimed as Important Intangible Cultural Property 77 in 1983, produced and collect his entire life. Daegu city received the collection as a donation for free and currently manages it.

Among the different types of brassware, Bangjja yugi has the best quality.

With one basement floor and one story above ground, this place has three permanent exhibition rooms, Yugi Room, Donated Items Room, Reproduction Room, and a culture appreciation room, film education room, outdoors performance stage, and a special exhibition room.

Yugi Room introduces the history of brassware, which has continued along with our history, and the craftsman spirit of those who succeed brassware artistry~

This place is where you can see the transition of tableware from the prehistoric times to the present!

Don’t you just grasp the extremely long period of history from the worn brassware? ^^

You can also see a brassware shop in which Bangjja yugis were traded a long time ago.

Even internationally, there are not many countries that preserve Bangjja yugi technique. As such, this place is an impressive and specialized culture art space that embraces the tradition and culture of Korea’s Bangjja yugi.
