    This is a small museum which is free to enter. It outlines Korean history under the Japanese and following independence, with a small exhibition about relations with America.

    This totally modern museum is good if you're interested in early Korean history, particularly what has been learned from tombs. We had visited tombs in Gyeongju, also highly recommended. This was a good follow-up, to see an excavation site and the objects found in them. Good explanations in English. Also, great views from the outdoor area.

    Maybe the right word is somber. You hear me Natsumi? It happened. Korea didn't "invite" you guys. Japan didn't do any good there. Terrible things occurred. Subsequent generations still suffer the pain and shame and will forever They ain't greedy either. They want an apology from the heart. They want the remaining victims taken care of before they depart. There's no forgetting as much as some would like to. You know who I am. You know who my people are. It is impossible for me not to be part of their heart. Don't you get it?

    Friends had recommended we see this as part of our visit to the UN Cemetery, which is also worth seeing. I learned a lot about the Korean conflict, especially the number of different countries that supported the UN Mission and what they did. This was the most detailed museum exhibit I'd seen of the course of the conflict. The National Museum of Contemporary Korean History in Seoul also has a lot of the conflict but presented from a different perspective.
