This is an excellent museum to visit if you like military things and like to learn about Korean history. Entry is free. The memorial gave me a new perspective on who were all involved in the original conflict and also the fact that the war is not actually over yet and its actually on a long cease fire! Outside the memorial is great if you like planes and war ships.
