Jeju Folklore & Natural Museum - Not that great but it was a good time to browse through the collection to understand the local beliefs and style of living in the older times.

It is a small museum (Jeju is small anyway) but it provides a lot of information about the island itself (volcanic history, animals, marines, and so on). Not very impressive comparing to other big museums elsewhere but a good place to visit in Jeju.
