This is the most boring museum ever. They have some stuff made with chocolate but it's nothing nice.
Also if you want to take the chocolate class you have to pay more.

It was located behind the mbc k-pop. The place was quite deserted. Nothing much to see.. you are given ₩3000 voucher each for a ₩3000 admission fee. Literally, this place is just encouraging you to shop at their shop.

There aren't a lot of stuff you can do here unless you join the chocolate making class which costs around 20,000won including the kit.

The good thing is that the entry fee (3,000 won) may be used to purchase anything here. There's a small shop that sells ice cream here so it's a good place to rest.

As the Chocolate Land is within 10 minutes’ walk from the Teddy Bear Museum in the Jungmun Resort area – just follow the direction on the sign-posts – my family and I had no hesitation to visit it on a rainy Sunday.

Getting there and fees: First and foremost, you have to note that Chocolate Land is different from Chocolate Museum. Chocolate Land is in the south central part of Jeju while Chocolate Museum is in the south west Jeju. We didn’t need the GPS coordinate/code for Chocolate Land but it’s 7381197 for anyone who’s driving there directly. The entrance fee for adults is 3000 won and 2000 won for children. A voucher was given back for every purchased ticket which can be redeemed at the gift shop or the café or the Chocolate School.

The Museum/Attraction: After going past the ticketing counter, you then turn right. The section on the left is a café and photograph/selfie stops of different types of Korean houses and benches with toy bears. There’s even a figurine of Santa Claus in front of one house, which was interesting considering Christmas is still some 6 months away. The section on the right is the exhibits on the history of chocolates, with the words written only in Korean.

We went down the stairways to the level below in which there’s a Chocolate School which teaches chocolate making at 120,000 won with lessons starting every hour from 10am to 6pm (I think the children would be more interested than adults). We didn’t go into the School; instead, we walked past M&M figurines and a Christmas tree (again interesting) and reached the chocolate shop where there are interesting exhibits of chocolates (behind glass) from America, Europe and Asia.

The gift shop has an extensive selection of chocolates (I think slightly more than outside). The prices of the Jeju chocolates of the same brand at the gift shop were slightly more expensive compared to those selling outside Chocolate Land. However, the Chocolate Land chocolates became slightly cheaper than those outside when we utilised the discount vouchers. Unique local Jeju chocolates are those with pink cactus flowers, mandarin oranges and hallabong fillings. We couldn’t wait till Christmas…we ate some of the chocolates before we left Jeju, and these were yummy!

There is a small observation area (Chocolate Garden) outside the building where the view looks towards the sea. There’s also a statue of Willy Wonka from the 1971 movie ‘Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory’ where you could take a photograph and selfie with. But we couldn’t go outside because it’s raining.

I recommend visiting the Chocolate Land if you have the time and if you have an appreciation of chocolates. Otherwise, I think you wouldn’t miss much if you decide to skip it.
