The Jeju Glass Castle was part of the itinerary of the group tour that I was part of. We spent more than an hour in the premises. We visited at daytime—I noticed that there a good number of spotlights so the Jeju Glass Castle must have a different ambience at night.

I have mixed feelings about the Jeju Glass Castle.

THE GOOD

The Jeju Glass Castle is picturesque and very instagrammable. There are numerous displays that one can pose with. Many of the displays are quite feminine, though—very floral and colorful—girly, even. Most of the displays are outdoors including a small glass maze. Our trip was in December so it was cold but manageable.

I liked the international glass displays—the Murano glass, especially because it reminded me of my aunt who had a significant number of pieces of this type of glass.

THE BAD

First and foremost, I expected to see a palace or at least a castle straight out of a fairy tale. The Jeju Glass Castle is nowhere near a castle or palace. The buildings were plain and very utilitarian. The gardens were manicured but not palatial. It was more of a museum and a park, rather than a castle.

Secondly, aside from signage that are in Korean or that mention the name of the place, there is nothing in the museum that shouts, “I am in Jeju!” or “I am in Korea!” for that matter. There is nothing in the museum that is intrinsically exclusive to the Jeju Glass Castle.

Lastly, I was looking forward to try the glass comfort but the lock inside was broken and the door won’t keep closed.

THE VERDICT

I was able to take good photos of the displays—like I said, they were very instagrammable. Nevertheless, I do not see myself going back here just for the sake of it. It gets boring eventually, with little to do except to look at beautiful glass.

Our trip in Jeju was turely a great one.
We had an excellent driver.
Mr. Kang from Jeju Day tour ( Hi Jeju Taxi tour) provided us with amazing taxi service. He also recommended good places with reasonable prices. He is very friendly and patient with us. We were all satisfied and will surely go with Mr.Kang if we happened to visit Jeju again. Highly recommend. Thank you. 😊😊

I was staying last week at the Shilla in Seogwigpo, and this was just a short cab ride away. Despite the slight morning drizzle, it held the attention of my 20 year old son! There were enough wow moments - spider web, Jack's beanstalk, mushrooms, football, dinosaur eggs, slippers... all made of glass, of course. I'm sure they would have looked even more impressive at night with the lights on. The cafe was worth a stopover -- you must have the freshly squeezed tangerine juice there. The souvenir shop sells some nice pieces of glass jewelry and ornaments.

amazing trail in the woods like walking through a fairy tale! lots of glass ornaments, lighting, this place is probably most beautiful and vibrant in the sun with all the reflections; we were there during a rain, but still very cute

It is quite expensive with 12.000 won per adult, but you could easily spent 2-3 hours and it is nicely set up.
Of course the glass castle has a lot of romantic photo ops for newlyweds. But also their little hiking trail is nicely decorated and I loved all the wind chimes.
You could do glass blowing or get your picture in glass. They have snacks and a coffee. Overall a nice little theme park.

After having been to quite a few of Jeju's museums...this has to be the most boring and way overpriced. It should be charging 2000KRW entry. ..not the KRW11,000 each we paid! All the extra stuff you can do inside costs extra, you can only see so many glass flowers and glass baubles before it becomes boring! We went in the day time. We had lunch there first. I would suggest that people get lunch in the nearby restaurants .... much cheaper! The food was good but not a great choice and double the price you'd pay locally. Perhaps this place is better at night but even if it was the price is still too high. I wouldn't bother taking kids here either.

This is just a regular museum with a small collection of glass from different parts of the world. It is far away from everything and not worth the trip. I would skip it.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Castle. I got to try my hand at glass blowing (I'm not very good) and found the detail in the pieces amazing. You can wander around at leisure, take as long as you like (I was there for 2 hours). There's a short 500m walk at the back you should do if able, there's all sorts of surprising pieces hidden in the woods.
