Original of Museum County

Yeongwol County selected the tourism industry as its local specialized industry and pursued it strategically. In addition, the WTO (World Trade Organization) said that through predictions of tourism environment trends, one subject for tourism products in local tourism are museums.

The Museum county project in Yeongwol is a project that effectively uses the local resources and also meets the global tourism industry trends, while emphasizing its uniqueness with other local governments.

The basic strategy of the museum county project, which is the new promotion project in Yeongwol County , is to erect museums that reflect the local features while inserting funding for new projects that will strengthen its soft competitiveness. First and foremost is to foster and use human resources while establishing a network, find value in theme experience programs and development of cultural products, and to concentrate on soft competitiveness through planning and processing to enhance additional values.

The museum county project is expected to help the local economy through the effective use of tourism resources and tourism synergy effects. In addition, it is expected to help Yeongwol become widely known, and should become increasingly famous for education and culture. Through participation from the community, it is also expected to increase income.
In order for the successful establishment of a museum county, the co-prosperity with the village in which the museum is located in is crucial. Therefore, programs are currently being developed for the local community to be able to participate in this undertaking. In addition, investments are being concentrated in software with the purpose to promote private museums. Through this, souvenirs are being developed, while the museum brand is being configured to create an undisputed museum county.
