As a foreigner visiting jeju, this museum may not be enough.
However, if you have kids, this place is great for them to learn a little about jeju and mostly the animals you can find on jeju.

They had an experiential section where you can try on the olden days clothes, carry the traditional rug bags and even checkout how their toilet used to look like.

It's an okay place to kill 1-2 hours for. Do try the ice cream at the cafe in the museum, decently priced and taste so good.

Jeju Folklore & Natural Museum - Not that great but it was a good time to browse through the collection to understand the local beliefs and style of living in the older times.

2,000 won entrance fee. Water and private locker available for free. Locker near the main gate. You can go to the park near directly from there.

It has more things to see but as a Korean it was not new. In many ways the exhibition was very similar with what I have ever seen in other National Museum in Korea.

But considering the price, just about 2 dollars, worth it.

Exhibiting people's life, nature, insects, animals and so on.

We visited this museum as our first stop in Jeju and found it to be the perfect introduction to the island. They have modern and interactive displays which are well constructed and maintained. The museum is very thorough and covers all aspects of Jeju’s natural and cultural history, from formation of the island to marine animals, to festivals and farming.

As we came during the cold snowy season, my sister and I were pretty limited in our choices of attractions we could visit. Come snow storm time, we felt pretty happy to be able to visit this place. Entry price at 2000krw (for Australians - not sure about other's as the admission clerks asked us where we were from before charging).
We took our time to look at every exhibit, read the descriptions and also watched the folklore surrounding how jeju was thought to have been formed.
The snow added a special touch to the melancholy feel of our whole experience and we ended up spending almost up to 1.5 hours here.
Make sure to take the map of this museum before entering as we would've certainly missed a couple exhibits otherwise.
If you're feeling peckish afterwards, there is a lovely jeju traditional noodle house opposite the road which serves beautiful range of noodles that will warm the soul, especially on a cold wintry day such as today.

my wife and i took the "manager's recommendation" tour of jeju island. we went to the museum which, as in most cases, was inundated with other tour groups and the local population. our guide's voice was often drowned out by louder guides making this experience unsatisfactory. the museum itself was interesting; but, we could have spent more time here were it not for the usual "shopping" experience mandatory on guided tours.
we complained to the cruiseship's excursion desk requesting a 50% refund on our tour expense; however, since i did not have the bus number of our tour, our request was denied. so, the lesson here is remember your bus number in case you complain.

The museum plays host to a lot of models depicting the life of Jeju natives in the early days. Very informative, if you like to learn about the history of Jeju and its people. If you're not a history/museum person though, you may want to give it a miss.

This was one of the stops for the Jeju City Bus Tours. Seniors like my mum got to go in free. It's a cosy museum that only takes 1-2 hours. Many Korean children come here for their school excursions, so it can get very noisy. Just opposite the museum is Jeju's famous noodle street.

Id recommend to go here first when landing at jeju, so you can see what's the island is all about, where to see what and what to see and look for at jeju. There's history, geography and some geological things or two there. Short trip, an hour or two might cover the whole museum and with 1100 per entry its nothing compared to the knowledge you'd get from this visit about jeju.

I read reviews that "it's just a museum"... This place is an entire culture. You aren't inside looking at artifacts, you are walking around an entire village experiencing a complete culture. I found this place extremely interesting. I am American and find the culture of Korea exciting, so keep that in mind when reading. I also do not like walking through indoor quiet boring museums, here it's interactive and fun. Playing the games kids used to play and having a hands on experience here... not just "looking".
