Many people in the ships. Mannequins for tourists to take photos with in the ships. Some are a bit scary to me.

The admission is pretty cheap so it's worth a quick look at the pride of Korea...not too many displays inside but you get some ideas what it must have been like fighting aboard the turtle ship

This great naval ship fought against thousands of Japanese soldiers during the invasion. The battle is known by all Koreans. This famous boat is reconstructed for many visitors to see the Korean history upclose.

4 ships to see and a ridiculously low price of about $2-3 USD the turtle ships are a vital part of Korean history and identity. The ships are a point of pride for many Koreans. Visiting them was a delight and well worth it!
