The World Jewellery Museum has an active program of temporary exhibitions throughout the year with themes ranging from ancient ornaments to contemporary jewellery designers. The museum strives to continually promote and expand the understanding of the world of jewellery through the use of museum’s collections and programs in order to remain faithful to Lee Kang-won’s unique vision in which human creativity is the oasis for communication and exchange among diverse cultures.
In the permanent exhibition around 1,000 items of jewellery from Africa, Asia, the Americas, Europe, and the South Pacific regions are featured in the nine exhibition galleries such as "Amber Wall", "Bracelet and Anklet Wall", "El Dorado Gallery", "Necklace Gallery", "Altar of the Crosses", "Mask Wall", "Ring Wall" and "Forest of Modern Jewellery".
