Learned so much more than I thought I knew. The appreciation they illustrate throughout the museum is truly incredible. The amount of suffering they went through was equally incredible.

A large and wide ranging war museum with exhibits ranging from prehistoric to the Korean War. The contemplative fountain is particularly calm. Certainly worth a visit.

You can take the subway and alight at Samgakji Station (Seoul Subway Line 6), Exit 11 or 12. It should be a few walks away from the exit.
