We spent the whole day here and didn't find a dull moment. It was so interesting and even fun with the tanks and planes displayed outside of the museum. Highly recommended for any age.

I spent a more than three hours at this museum, clearly not enough because I just had time to take a quick look at the outdoor displays where you find fighters, tanks, boats and even a real B-52 Stratofortress!

First, this museum is easy to find and free of charge. You can get an pamphlet in English at the entrance. In case you need energy before long walking hours or a break during or after the visit, you can find sanwiches and drinks in a small cafeteria. The gift shop is a disappointment, small and almost no books in English, not even one on the Korean War.

The inside exhibits are well organized, easy to follow. The Korean War takes a big section of two floors with key points in English, photos, artefacts, dioramas and so on. There are also an 3D movie and a shooting game which make up the fun part of the visit.

Too bad that I could not take a guided tour. However, I was lucky to come on a Friday in May where there was a marching parade which was just awesome.

If you come to visit Seoul, don't miss the War Memorial Museum.

The highlight of my trip in Seoul. I was deeply moved and impressed with what I saw in the museum. Worth your time. Tip: Go on a weekday. ^_^

Visitors would need a full 4 hours to completely appreciate this museum. The interactive exhibits and displays are all worth the try. This museum completely explains in detail the story of the Korean War. This one comes in as highly-recommended...
