Chocolate Museum The Chocolate Museum’s structure was built using the volcanic scoria that can only be found in Jeju, giving it the majestic look of an ancient castle. Once inside, you’ll be greeted by a statue of a cacao God a strong indicator of the chocolate festivities to come and be led into room after room of chocolate artifacts, paraphernalia, and of course, taste tests.
Dak Paper Doll Museum Don’t be fooled by the light heartedness of Jeju-do’s museum offering; it’s a place with plenty of handicraft heritage.Dak paper is often used for calligraphy and painting but because of its unique colors and soft surfaces, it can also be used to make the most delicate of children’s toys. Despite the fact that it usually takes four months to make a 15 centimeter doll, they are used in modern animation as well.
Teddy Bear Museum From the Mona Lisa teddy to the bears of The Last Supper, the Teddy Bear Museumis an homage to all things cute and cuddly. Get your magnifying glass out to find the world’s smallest teddy bear at the not-so-princely height of 4.55 millimeters.
Jeju Glass Castle The delicate shine of Jeju Glass Castle gives the whole place an ethereal vibe. 250 glass models are exhibited in six themed model parks but it’s the exceptionally large glass ball and glass diamond that are particularly memorable. Head into the main hall to try your hand at making glass art, and head home with your own glass balloon, bottle or ornament.
Alive Museum Despite the hoo-ha around the selfie stick ban in South Korea earlier this year, the ‘selca’ (‘self-capture’) is still enjoying rude health around the country. A number of attractions seem to be designed with the selca in mind, and the Alive Museum is one of them. A funhouse of optical illusions, it even has helpful guides (available in English) to nudge you in the direction of the perfect non-sensical snap. Whether it’s walking over an erupting volcano or hanging off the side of a high-rise, you can (appear to) do the near-impossible time and time again.
Hello Kitty Island You heard: island. Despite the potentially misleading name (really, it’s just an indoor reconstruction of a kid’s imagination gone wild) this is an inescapably immersive insight into just how popular the Hello Kitty brand is in Korea. You won’t see so much pink in your life as at the Hello Kitty Island. Pause for a refuel and even your latte will get the Hello Kitty treatment.
