The War Memorial Of Korea, Seoul Reviews

  • Amazing museum, one of my tops of all time. We thought 2 hours would be a good amount of time to explore, but we could've been here for another two hours if we weren't kicked out at closing time. It's very well laid out with videos you can watch throughout (available in Korean, English, Chinese and Japanese) that go in depth into the history. And it's free!!

  • Amazing place! There is a lot of military equipment such as planes and tanks outside including B52 bomber! Inside museum there are three floors filled up with models, projections in different languages, historic and modern guns and much more. There is also tons of information about every military conflict in Korean history. You should definitely visit this place if you are interested in history. One of the must see places in Seoul. And everything was free of charge!

  • This is the best place to learn about the history of Korean war. The place is huge and full of information. This is one of the most innovative museums I have ever seen. The volunteer guides here speak so passionately about the story of the Korean war and the whole place shows the importance of peace in life.

  • Amazing museum with free entry! The museum is expansive and comprehensive, covering the various conflicts in Korean history. The content is varied enough to be interesting throughout, including interactive displays, "4D" movies and simulations, etc. The outdoor grounds also display a number or military vehicles which you can climb and get close to.

  • Inspiring history for all ages. Displays are respectful, informative and nicely done. You will feel part of Korean past. Can easily spend half a day exploring. Free admission!
