Korean War Memorial

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by globe trotter on April 10, 2001

The title doesn't do this museum justice- as it sounds like it's just going to be a single statue or something when in fact it's a huge complex with both indoor and outdoor exhibits.

I went here to learn more about the Korean War and although I found the exhibits interesting, I didn't come away with much more knowledge than I went in with as most of the explanations were written in Korean.

There are an impressive collection of planes, helicopters and boats to climb on outside and lots of videos, pictures and life-like exhibits inside depicting life as experienced by civilians and military during the war.
