World Natural Heritage Exhibitions

On June 27th, 2007, the 『volcanic island and lava caves』 in Jeju was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage for the first time in Korea. Designated heritages include Hallasan Natural Sanctuary whose scenic value and geologic value is well appreciated, Tuff Cone in Seongsan Ilchulbong, and Geomunoreum Lava Tube System (Bengdwi Cave, Manjang Cave, Gimnyeong Cave, Yongcheon Cave and Dangcheomul Cave including Geomunoreum). This exhibition clearly and intelligibly describes the process of designating Jeju's world natural heritages and its contents with description panels and video images.


Besides, there are miniatures of Hallasan and Seongsan Ilchulbong, and visitors can get information about animals and plants in Hallasan using a touch-screen information searcher. In a cave, a lava falls in Gimnyeong Cave is reproduced to explain the process of formation. Also, it displays the inside of a cave by modelling Dangcheomul Cave, a lime decorated lava tube having a characteristic of a limestone cave which is a closed area in Geomunoreum Lava Tube System. By modelling stalactite, soda straws, stalagmite and various kinds of cave products, it makes visitors feel as if they were in a real cave.
