Great for aspiring geologists...
Nice park that's pretty big to walk around.
You will have a geography lesson on the various kinds of rocks and also a lesson on the mythological origins of Jeju-do.

Jeju Stone Park is a vast area with everything stone related. With Jeju being a volcanic island, the lava stones are everywhere from the Harubang statues to the walls surrounding houses. The park is divided into three courses which would take about an hour each at a leisurely pace. The first course has mostly rock statues (including the Harubang statues) that most likely had some religious significance. The second course shows how the rocks were used for more practical purposes (tombstones, tools, housing, etc) through the different eras of Korean history. The third course specifically shows the different Jeju style housing made with mostly the volcanic rock walls. It’s probably not the best place to be in the middle of heat in the summer but when the weather is nice, it’s a fantastic spot to spend a few hours.

Half science, half art. A museum dedicated to the formation of the igneous rocks in the area, tectonic plate movements, volcanic eruptions, formation of lava tubes, and various methods of making craters. Extremely interesting!

Then rock art. Lots of interesting rocks from around the island, arranged in a way that makes them just so fascinating.

Budget a couple of hours here for a leisurely walk through these sections. Add a couple more hours to see the historical village section (which we didn’t go into as we had seen these elsewhere already).

This place exceeded my expectations, it is definitely a highlight of Jeju, it is perfectly organized to be a journey itself. We spent around 3 hours walking around ( it has 3 different routes well explained in the map) and simply feeling the nature was already healing. The entrance is 6.000 Korean won per person. They have drinking fountains and toilets inside. You can reach it by bus!

Jeju Stone Park exceeded our expectations. So much space and everything well laid out. The museum was particularly interesting with some absolutely amazing pieces of lava, and microscopes set-up, which my 9-year old Daughter loved. They also had an interesting photography exhibition (temporary). If you are a geologist and/or simply interested in volcanoes and rocks, then you will probably spend all day here. Appreciated the water machines everywhere but the restaurant was closed (just in case you are hungry). We all enjoyed it immensely. Children less than 12 are free and adults are KRW 5000 (very reasonable).

Keep in mind, the founder, Paek Uncheol, is quoted "“Visiting the park is intended to be a journey through the mythology of the island, entering through the ear of Seolmundae*, progressing through the body and exiting at the feet. It represents the journey of life and death.” Taking a journey that ends in death, even if it is a metaphoric (mythical, mystical, mind-boggling) death, may not appeal to everyone, but it could be transformative if you're open to it. Allow for hours of contemplating stones, thousands, tens of thousands, of stones, natural, carved, authentic, replicas - millstones, mortars, volcanic bombs, boundary markers, 2000 ceramic jars, fossilized tree roots - locals thought its creator, who collected these stones for forty years, had gone mad.
Three courses to follow, each taking one to two hours.

Jeju stone park was not part of the regular sightseeing itineraries and do we opted for a customized private tour to visit Jeju stone park. Requires atleast 3 to 4 hours if you want to walk along the trails to cover entire area. A visit inside the museum to understand the volcanic activities and formations will help in understanding the nature of the island better. Good to go with a local guide. Interesting statues and rock formations

The park is a unique in the sense that it is dedicated to stones in Jeju culture. Lots of statues, pavilion with the history of volcanic activity, some traditional houses, old sculptures, big and small. Large space, a lot of walking.
