[Update] All new Children’s Museum & Immersive Space at JNM

Here are some images from the newly opened section of Jeju National Museum’s Children’s Museum and Immersive Space. 

This completely free and fun children’s experience space is designed mainly for kids aged 6 to 10 to learn more about the lives of the Jeju people. It’s set against a backdrop of the mountains, fields, and ocean of Jeju and divided into five areas: Meet, Climb, Run, Go and Share. 

As a national museum, there are also many facilities for the convenience of the general public, including a large lounge for relaxation and reading, a cafe, and a children’s play area. 

The Immersive Space presents a 15-minute media art experience that’s fun for the whole family. Under the theme of “Drifting in the Sea,” kids can freely run and interact with the media art projected all around a very large room.

The story recreates the adventures of Jeju islander Jang Han-cheol, who was nearly lost at sea while sailing to the mainland to take the civil service examination in 1770. It really feels like you’re on a boat rocking in heavy seas!

A special exhibition titled “Jeju National Museum Goes With Jeju” will also mark the 20 years since Jeju National Museum first opened in the Geonip neighborhood of Jeju City. It runs until Feb 6, 2022.

Tip: There is now a new area of parking allowing visitors to stop in directly from the main road (1132 Highway, also known as the Iljudong-ro).
