No Shopping DMZ Half Day Tour from Seoul

124 reviews
Enjoy the highlights of the DMZ and get back to Seoul in time for lunch on a guided group tour. Listen to immersive commentary during visits to Imjingak Park, Dora Observatory, and other important landmarks. Have your camera ready for an unobstructed view of one of the world's most famous demilitarized zones. Best of all, this excursion does not include unnecessary shopping stops that other tours add on, which saves you valuable vacation time.

This museum talks exhibitions the lives of the comfort women for Japanese soldiers during World War 2. The staff approached us with such kindness and provided us with audio guides in English and helpfully explained in detail how to use them. The first part of the museum was immersive and took you through a small replica of the path the women had to travel. The guide takes you to a basement that displays a different comfort woman each week. The second part of the museum explains the history of the war and the comfort women from Korea, China and other countries across Asia. The exhibition continues by discussing how the Korean government have been campaigning against the Japanese government to have them admit their crimes. I found out that every Wednesday at 12pm people in Seoul protest outside of the Japanese embassy for the comfort women. This museum is incredibly moving and brought both me and my friend to tears.

I came here with my girlfriend and we were stunned by this museum. It is a truly eye opening experience not only to the past but what is still happening in present day. They give you an audioguide, which is very helpful as most of the displays are in Korean. As well as being very educational and informative, the museum gives you the opportunity to donate to help fight for the end of sexual slavery and for the freedom of the women who have been affected. Anyone and everyone should go to this museum, and appreciate the bravery of the women who have stepped forward and shared their stories.

Tucked away in a little neighborhood, this museum is a small, intimate experience of a terrible chapter in the history of World War II. The English audio guide walks visitors through the little building, where art, personal stories, and artifacts tell the painful stories of “comfort women,” sex slaves who served the Imperial Japanese Army after being abducted and forced into service. A ‘must see’ destination to understand how widespread violence against women was a historical reality that has yet to end. Stories of sexual violence that continues today in other parts of the world are also reflected in an included exhibit. Appropriate for youth ages 13 and older (many of the sex slaves were younger at the time of their kidnapping). I was glad to see both young women and men taking their time to thoughtfully proceed through the museum.

CC ( 19.02.16 ) I and my son visited this museum to know more about enforced sex slaves by Japan. No photo inside, and had many exhibit about enforced sex slaves in WW II. The exhibits was more terrible than I think, and I felt sorry for women in these times. The inside was a little small, but well-managed. In some area, special exhibit was held about Vietnamese women's victim who was harmed in Vietnam War by Korean soldier. I felt sorry, too. Without considering national benefit and nationality, we don't forget and must console about innocent people who had much pain.
