I love the wallet-friendly admission prices to the Korean government's tourist attractions. Some are even free, come with English-speaking guides and/or tablets with headphones with information. This one had info boards and cards but it was in a beautiful setting, a mini forest in the...More

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...More

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.

It is a small museum (Jeju is small anyway) but it provides a lot of information about the island itself (volcanic history, animals, marines, and so on). Not very impressive comparing to other big museums elsewhere but a good place to visit in Jeju.

Amazing that it is free! Beautiful painted buildings and a big range of more ‘ordinary’ buildings and traditional houses.

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...More

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 -...More

There is a small admission fee but there was nothing much to see. The surroundings gardens were pleasant but this could be because of the extremely cold December weather. We only stayed around for less than an hour and left as soon as the next...More
