Introduction

Jeju Stone Park is an ecological and cultural park that displays the history of stone culture pivotal to the history and culture of Jeju Island.

The park will be constructed in its entirety by 2020 and its first installments (Jeju Stone Museum, Jeju’s Traditional Thatched-roof Houses, and Jeju Stone Culture Exhibition Hall) were opened in June 2006 seven years after construction began.

Because the park covers a wide variety of exhibitions in a large area, visitors may want to take enough time to look around in the park. Befitting the unique natural landscape on Jeju Island, the park is situated nearby oreum small volcanic cones scatted throughout the island. Visitors can arrive at the entrance of the park by walking along what looks like fortress walls on a gentle hill. The entrance itself is a great spot to overlook nearby attractions.

Following the exhibition pathway, visitors will find stone sculptures such as Grandmother Seolmundae and Five Hundred Generals and traditional local thatched-roof houses amidst the forest. Oddly enough, Jeju Stone Museum is located underground so as not to interfere with the natural landscape.

Outdoor Exhibition offers 48 Dol Hareubang (literally "Old Grandfather" stone statues) seen throughout Jeju Island), Bangsatap (small, round towers made of many stones that were believed to ward off misfortunes), Jeongjuseok (low stone symbols showing that Jeju didn’t need high fences against potential encroachments), and Dongjaseok (child-looking grave stones revealing what people on Jeju Island thought about their afterlife. Overall, surrounded by beautiful nature, the park offers the unique culture and history of Jeju Island.
