I like visiting the Memorial, but the museum felt kind of empty. There is a lot of stuff to see, in a very big space.

Although the museum contains many fascinating historical pieces from the stone age onward, the main attraction is definitely the displays related to the Korean War. This is shown through pictures, weapons, movies, official documents, interactive screens, miniature recreations, and full-scale war machines. The fountain at the end of the ground floor is also worth a visit: it reminds of Indiana Jones.

The War memorial was amazing and the extent of information was surprising. The grounds and the building were extremely well kept.
