Around the Sancheong Oriental Medicine Museum, you’ll find the Oriental Medicine Theme Park. The place mainly displays a variety of materials related to herbal medicine. The museum was founded in 2007 by the Sancheong-gun Office, with the goal of introducing Korean herbal medicine to the world. The museum is currently managed by the Graduate School of Oriental Medicine, Pusan National University.

The district of Geumseo-myeon where the theme park is located is designated by the Sancheon-gun Office as Donguibogam Village. It’s mainly because Sancheong is where Heo Jun and Ryu Ui-tae, the two most renowned doctors of the Joseon Dynasty, practiced medicine. The World Traditional Medicine EXPO 2013 is held in Donguibogam Village. Besides the Sancheong Oriental Medicine Museum, the village has a number of other facilities related to Oriental medicine such as the Sancheong Oriental Medicine Theme Park.

The museum mostly displays materials related to Oriental medicine and medicinal herbs. It has a total of 8 exhibition halls in a two-story building. The Traditional Medicine Exhibition Hall on the first floor is composed of Hall 1, featuring the history and advantages of traditional medicine, Hall 2, showing how an old Oriental medicine clinic looked like as well as various Oriental medicine treatments, Hall 3, offering various Oriental medicine experience programs for visitors, and Hall 4, playing videos about the globalization of Oriental medicine.
