Haenyeo Museum, Jeju

4.0
#3 of 22 in Museums in Jeju
Haenyeo Museum gives a fascinating introduction to the culture of the region's hard-working female free-divers, otherwise known as Haenyeo. Literally translating as "sea women," the Haenyeo symbolize the Jeju province's semi-matriarchal family structure, and in the 1960s would account for 60% of Jeju'’s fisheries revenue, while 40% of Haenyeo husbands remained unemployed. Explore a recreation of a Haenyeo’s home, and her meals, and inspect displays of preserved diving equipment, including a pair of Haenyeo divers’ goggles and traditional swimsuit.
