We stumbled upon this place because it is near our hotel. We now wonder why we did not visit this place on our previous trips to Seoul. It is not just a memorial. There was an open air exhibit of the armament that took part in the Korean War. There is also a military history museum, showing warfare on the Korean peninsular from ancient time to the Korean War. Highly recommended to all who are interested in history and warfare.

It’s a good place to visit if you would like to know about the war history of Korea. A lot of planes, tanks and equipments used during war are displayed.

This is a very educational museum. It is free of charge. You can also bring home a thick book about Korean War. The builiding is very nice, quite and peaceful. You learn a lot about the War. You may have hear about Korean War, but after the trip you will know all.

If you like to read everything in detail, 1 day barely enough. For me, I will visit again because I still not able to go over the top floor....

For the museum, there are no sign. When you exit the subway for museum, remember just go straight and follow the road. The museum is actually on your left hand side when you exit the station. However, you will not be able to see because of the surrounding building. (I actually got lost).

Make sure you have enough time to visit the three floors of the museum. It is arranges in a clever way to intrigue the visitors with original videos, sounds and memorabilia. And it is free admittance. Great job.
