Celebrating the 1000th anniversary of Jeolla’s foundation, the Gwangju National Museum opened a special exhibition recently.

Under the theme of 1000 Years of Jeolla – People who Protected Jeolla-do for 1000 Years, the event introduces the region’s basic history, people who lived here before Jeolla’s foundation, people who dreamt of a new world here, people who fought battles to protect the region and the country as well as Jeolla’s image in outsiders’ eyes.

The exhibit will provide a great chance to explore the region’s 1000-year-long history until February 10th, 2019 with some 250 pieces of artifacts including 5 pieces of National Treasure and 38 pieces of Treasure.
