The museum was set up as a gallery with more than a thousand colorful lanterns, photos of the city of Jinju will be displayed showing the magnitude of the light festivals that take place there in the country.

It is curious to think that the tradition began in the 12th century, when lanterns were used as a military tactic during the Imjin war (1592-1598), they were used to carry messages out of fortresses and later the population began to release them into Rio Ningang to honor soldiers killed in action during the war.
