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.
