Young Jip Bows & Arrows Museum

Young Jip Bows & Arrows Museum - the only museum of its kind in Korea - exhibits traditional bows and arrows from Korea and overseas. It also holds a large collection of related weapons and tools including catapult and freight car. Visitors can learn all about various ways of manufacturing bows and arrows, and can even try their hand at making their own traditional bow or test their skill in archery. Young Jip is the pen-name of Yoo Young Ki, a Paju-born traditional bow-and-arrow craftsman. He inherited the family vocation, and has been designated as Gungsijang (Bow and Arrow Making) of Intangible Cultural Heritage No. 47.
