Home > Ulsan Onggi Museum > Greetings

I sincerely welcome all of you to the website of the Ulsan Onggi Museum.

This museum, located in the Oegosan Onggi Village, the largest onggi cluster nationwide,
is a 1st-class professional museum, a space displaying the history and culture of onggi.

Particularly, the world’s largest onggi, listed on the Guinness Book of Records, is the symbol of our museum as well as the work loved by many visitors. The permanent exhibition hall displays about 300 different pieces of onggi.

I think any Korean of the older generations can easily recall childhood memories of crocks located in the sunny backyard of their home and rendered glossy by their mothers’ continuous touch. Our grandmothers and mothers filled these onggi with every Korea sauce and side dish to take good care of the health of their family members all year around.

We have moved forward with various projects in order to let people know the excellence of traditional onggi fused Our ancestors’ wisdom that spreads into our real life. We will seek quality rather than quantity by running specialized Onggi Village’s programs, as well as enhancing its prestige as a professional onggi museum.

Thank you.
