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.

Haenyeo Museum Reviews
해녀라고 하면 지나가다 "해녀의 집"이라며 직접 잡은 해산물을 파는 분들로 알기 쉽습니다. 하지만, 국립제주박물관을 다녀와 보고 옛 제주도민의 힘들었던 삶을 알게 된 뒤 이곳에서 느끼는 감정은 달랐습니다. 그렇게 힘들었던 제주도민들의 삶에서 더 힘들었던 여성으로서의 삶, 특히나 해녀들은 정말 불쌍했구나... 싶은 생각이 절로 들었네요. 숫자는 이제 많이 줄... more »It is a "house of the Maids" passing by, and it is easy to know who sells seafood caught. However, I felt a different feeling here after I went to the National Museum of Jeju to see the difficult life of the old Jeju. Life as a woman more difficult in the lives of the people of Jeju-do that was difficult, especially the women who were really poor... I thought I'd have to. The numbers are now very much reduced, and I wanted to be very unusual in life as I was guided by the fact that these people were registered as UNESCO Intangible Cultural Properties. We were able to understand the young woman through various exhibits, and the Sehwa sea from the rooftop observation deck was beautiful. It is a good idea to visit the hotel. At the end of the souvenir shop, there are lots of pretty things to be heard.

It is a very winter breeze at the Seji Koji and Seongsan Ilchulbong. It is about 15km higher with a tingling face, and the Haenyeo Museum is located in one of the five places.
