The KNU Museum was opened in 1959 on the 13th anniversary of the founding of KNU. The museum building includes exhibition halls, an audio lab, preservation facilities, and an extensive outdoor exhibition garden for stone relics that is unique among all university museums in Korea.
The KNU Museum has a collection of about 7,000 items, ranging from prehistoric relics to recent folk materials and 40,000 excavated artifacts, 7 of which have been designated as National Treasures by the Korean Cultural Heritage Administration. The exhibition halls display artifacts in a chronological order from Neolithic comb-pattern pottery and stone-axes to porcelains, paintings, and written records from the Chosun Dynasty, and ore recent folk materials. Meanwhile, the outdoor garden includes stone statues of officials, stone tablets that range from the Silla period to the Chosun Dynasty, restored dolmens from the Bronze age in Daegu, and a stone-lined tomb from the Three Kingdoms period.
