However, more than its amazing sculptures, the nature around the museum is a thing of wonder. To the front, the museum looks upon the Taejosan Mountain. It’s been said that Taejosan Mountain gained its name because King Taejo, the founder of Goryeo, maintained a military base in the area west to this mountain. It contains Yuryangcheon and Sanbangcheon streams and provides a full view of the city at its peak. It has been receiving a growing number of hikers and mountaineers, and it is especially popular among female hikers because of its gentle terrains. It is also the home of the bronze seated Buddha in Gaewongsa Temple, popular among tourists.
To the back, there is a healing walk path filled with trees and scattered sculpture pieces, blending nature and art.
