The War Memorial Of Korea - Review
One of the darkest phases in the history of this country is extremely well documented in this museum located in the Yongsan-dong area of Seoul. The Korean War was one which had a number of significant influences on the nation and how it is today.
The museum houses war memorabilia, military equipment, period art and exhibits and is a huge draw for tourists on a regular basis. It is recommended that visitors begin their tours from the outside before heading inwards. This is because the outside of the museum has a lot of fighter plane exhibits.
The numerous tanks and war machines including reenactment sets of famous incidents make this museum a must visit location. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Seoul Itinerary 5 Days.

The War Memorial Of Korea, Seoul Reviews
So much history & excellent exhibits This war museum in Seoul South Korea was such a great experience! I went there in December 2015 on a business trip & I was amazed at how well put together the exhibits are. A few of them are audio-visual & interactive. They do a great job at educating foreigners like myself & locals alike of this trying time in South Korean history. Definitely recommended to go there at least once
A must see. Memorial statues are quite poignant and leave an impression. Museum part was very interesting and so much Korean history. They really cover everything and the exhibits were awesome.
A must-see if you’re in Seoul. It’s a great memorial/museum. Lots of military hardware displayed outside. It’s very cool if you’re into that sort of thing. You can pretty much sit in/on most of the military gear. Great for photos. And the museum part of it is also very cool. Lots of history and historical significance of the most recent wars that have shaped this peninsula. I think the admission is free if I remember it correctly.
We walked the grounds. The sculptures are very moving, perhaps one of the most touching memorials I've been too. The plains, tanks, and missiles were also a favorite of our inquisitive 3yo. We spent more than an hour in the excellent (and free) children's museum, where everything is hands-on.
This museum is free of charge and is huge as well. It also offers a good explanation on Korean history for a newcomer like me, which was nice. I wouldn't necessarily call it a "children friendly museum", but then again I don't have kids. I also assume that the target audience is adults and not children so it really doesn't matter. All in all this is a great museum for people interested in Korea. We visited this museum before we did a day trip to the DMZ. This was very helpful as we understood a lot more of the tour guides explanation.
