About The War Memorial Of Korea, Seoul

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.

The War Memorial Of Korea, Seoul Reviews

  • Loved it! We spent about 3 hours there and it absolutely flew. So much to see and read, and there's tons of short video clips as well to help piece everything together. The exhibits are fantastic. They're super creative and the people who set them up have really paid so much attention to detail. I highly recommend it. It's free as well,which is unbelievable considering how much stuff and Information they've jam-packed in here.

  • A thoroughly interesting museum. It's a big place and will take up several hours of your day if you plan to see it all. It is incredibly informative and the attention to detail is pretty amazing. Sometimes, you can catch the South Korean honor guard performing outside. They're amazing to watch.

  • Excellent museum. One of the best war museums I have ever been to. Excellent historical displays and artifacts from many different time periods. Felt like there was some anti Japan bias at times, but the Japanese museums have some anti Korea bias so I guess it's fair? Seemed pretty accurate and had a lot of interesting things to see and learn. Great for both adults and kids. Takes several hours to really see the whole thing. I'd go again next time I'm in Seoul.

  • The memorial is free entry but Donations are accepted. The place is big, you might need the whole day to see almost everything. They close at 5pm.. I really recommend this to anyone. If you feel hungry, there's a CU store close to the Memorial, there's also a a cafe/gift shop for you to buy a snack. A few restaurants across the street from the memorial building.

  • Great place to visit! We had a great tour guide. There was so much to see. We spent a whole day here and still didn't to get to see everything! Do plan a couple days, so you can take your time exploring.
