Learn about Jeju's history and native cultures at Jeju National Museum. The museum offers answers to numerous questions about the life on the island from the prehistoric times to the Joseon period. Roam through the six permanent exhibit halls and see valuable archaeological findings and historic relics, such as a pearl divers' raft. An original 18th-century dol hareubang--a huge rock statue representing a fertility god--greets visitors at the entrance, and the rooftop garden remains a perfect place to unwind. Occasionally, the museum hosts performances by well-known musicians and art groups. For Jeju National Museum and beyond, use our Jeju journey planning site to get the most from your Jeju vacation.
