철암탄광역사촌 (Cheoram Coal Mine History Village) or Cheoram Coal Mine Historic Town, is a life history museum to review the past and present of the coal industry in Korea. It revives Cheoram, the "black city", and its traces of history of the past coal industry. The main topic are the daily life of the miners and their families and the importance of the mines for the city. The location is the Kachibal Building, which is a series of abandoned mining related workshops along the Cheoramcheon River. It contains 7 rooms depicting real life in the Cheoram area, 6 rooms for the art gallery, and 12 rooms for various shops. There is also cultural space for exhibitions and performances and an outdoor installation art space. The buildings along the Cheoram River retain the appearance of a coal mining village in the 1980s.
