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.

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.

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 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.

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 hourly Jeju City Tour bus arrived. There were not many tourists and only some teenagers on a school excursion were there.
