One of the many unusual museums on Jeju island. Same format and content as the american ones - but worth the trip nonetheless. Lots of great photo ops.

The kids enjoyed this place, lots for them to see and do. Although, for smaller children some exhibits are a bit gruesome and scary. The shrunken heads were a fascination for them.

When I was a kid I would see Ripley's Believe it or Not on TV. This is a great collection of bizarre everything from Elvis's hair to antique torture tools. Our family had a great time there. Bonus that there is a Starbucks next door.

Just like the Ripley's in the states. Mostly framed pictures. Very average. Descriptions were mostly accurate but not always.

Plan around two hours for the trip. If you want to read every fact which is written on the walls, then its maybe around three hours.
