War Memorial of Korea

Learn all about Korea’s wartime history at this somber but historically important museum. Exhibits range from Joseon-era military ships to modern-era war records. For a nation whose history has been marked by invasion and war, you’ll learn a lot about how Korea came to be the place it is today.

Although special events here may come with a fee, permanent exhibitions and the children’s museum are free.
