I suppose if you are in Jeju Island, then this village, I'm assuming, you will visit. Rain was sort of a spoiler, but we were helped out by the people for sheltering under umbrella. Prior to walking in for seeing and learning about the living of people back then in Jeju. Included in our visit was sitting through a demonstration and talk about horses bones and the products made out of them. Nope. I didn't buy.
This place is a lot bigger than expected. Entrance is a bit more expensive than other places but i think it's worth it for the interactive parts and great photo-ops. I went alone and enjoyed my self, but it seems like a great place for a family trip. You can definitely spend some hours here and then go (or go before) to the beach that is near. There is a lot of parking, but i got there by bus, from the other side of the island, just fine. Besides the included shows, there is a few inexpensive activities and shops inside. I bought some cute wood art from the wood carver in one of the exhibitions.
