Situated in Gijisi-ri in Songak-eup of Dangjin-si, the Gijisi Juldarigi Museum introduces and has displays of not only the invaluable cultural asset of Korea, the Gijisi Juldarigi (Tug-of-War), but also the traditional tug-of-war of Korea and foreign countries as well.

At the museum, you can find various materials and information related to tug-of-war as well as facilities where you can enjoy a cultural experience and displays of Jeojageori dating from the 60's and the 70's, which makes it the perfect place for the entire family to come and have a memorable experience of the history and culture of Korea.

Gijisi Juldarigi, which has been designated as Important Intangible Cultural Property No. 75, is an event with a 500-year history and traditions. The rope used during the tug-of-war is massive; it's about 200m in length and 1m in diameter (1.8m in diameter at the head) and weighs about 40 tons. The 'Gijisi Juldarigi Folk Festival' is held annually in April to pray for peace and prosperity of Korea and to provide a chance for people to become one.
