Hanbat Museum of Education (est. July 10, 1992) is home to 7 exhibition halls, 3 smaller exhibition areas, and outdoor exhibit areas displaying a total of 27,000 pieces of education-related items such as old school textbooks, educational books, student files, stationery, and more. The museum is particularly popular as a fieldtrip destination for area students.

Exhibition chambers at the museum house documents and items that bear witness to the history of education from the olden days (i.e. village Confucian schools) to the present. Also on display are folk materials on the ancient educational institutions of the past and the daily lives of students. Thanks to the extent and variety of its documents, the museum is a great educational institution that not only preserves the history of education in Korea, but also sheds light on hundreds of years of life, tradition, and culture.

The museum building, built on June 8th, 1938, is the oldest one in the city. Used as a school and later a military base for the U.N. Peace Corps and North Korean soldiers during the Korean War, the building has never been renovated and still bears the bullet holes and other marks of its tumultuous history. In recognition of its historical importance as a local structure, the museum was designated Cultural Property Material No. 50.
