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 middle of surburbia. The exhibits, including a short 3D film, tell the story of the mythical origins of settlement of Jeju built around some original artifacts. You get to go close to exhibits and there's also an opportunity to dress in a scholar's robes for a photo in a study. Staff are very helpful and friendly and the place is wheelchair friendly. It is easily accessed by public bus or taxi.

Three mysterious stone falls on the ground, resulting in 3 holes... from the holes rise three men... and in time, Jeju is born... Such folklore may only appear in books, but in Jeju, there are evidence of the same, preserved into a real interactive museum.. Remember to watch the 3D movie and visit the sakura during spring time.

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.

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.
