  • Excellent and well maintained living museum and village. Impressive amount of exhibits over a lot of land. Easily spend a half day here exploring the village, take the audio tour, take photos, watch and buy crafts by artists. There are plenty of restrooms, a restaurant on premise and many interactive activities.
  • Nice place to get to know deeper about Korean Traditional Culture. Spacious and big area to look around. Don't stop by if you are in hurry, because it may takes around two and half hours to complete the tour. I used to love watching Jewel in the Palace, and there's one part of this museum show the place where it is been casting. But unfortunately at the time I was there, it was raining and I didn't bring the umbrella, so I had to pass by all the places in hurry. It's quite was wasteful if u don't enjoy reading all about their culture because the ticket price is expensive ( 11000 KRW). They also provide audio for guidance. So, enjoy this trip 😄
  • If you want to see the real Korean tradition the history and the background and the colourful life, the place you must visit
  • It’s a nice recreation but don’t go on a Sunday. For what they charge there’s no activity or any shows or anything available. It was nice but boring and everything was pretty much the same. May be newer and a place where they filmed a drama but not much other than that. Maybe during week days? But seems highly unlikely. Not really worth what they charge especially since you have to pay additional when I get inside for anything interesting.
  • Large area to cover, but worth explolring the village. I've learned so much things reegarding socioculture in jeju island. Audioguide rental do really help. Entrance fee a little bit expensive (11,000KRW)
