The best thing about the location of the museum is that it is close to a lot of nature. Gwangi Oreum and Halla Arboretum are both nearby and are both great places to go for a stroll.

Alternatively, if you have been inspired by the museum of art and want to visit another museum then Nexon Computer Museum comes highly recommended.

Located near to Gwangi Oreum (광이오름), Halla Arboretum boasts of more than 1,000 different species of plant. Its theme gardens include a bamboo garden, a herb garden, and an Endemic and Rare Woody Plants Garden.

It is a really popular place due to its proximity to the city and to Jeju International Airport and it is a great place to take a walk due to its clean air.

Located to the south of Halla Arboretum, Kwang-I Oreum is named due to the fact that it looks like a garden hoe. (Gwangi means hoe in Korean.)

To climb the oreum, you should first enter Halla Arboretum. It will then take 20 minutes to reach the summit from where you will be able to see Mt. Hallasan if the weather is good.
