  • Our visit to the museum was too brief and I look forward to returning on my next visit to Seoul. The exhibits cover thousands of years of Korean history and is a fitting tribute to their ancestors...

  • More than just the Korean war- includes artifacts and information throughout the centuries from all of the different dynasties. Be sure to check out the aircraft and tanks on the outside. If you're in to history this is a worthwhile museum! Also has a nice cafe to get a snack and cold drink.
  • The outside and inside of the museum are very beautiful. There is so much information and many things to see. I recommend taking your time to look around. My friends and I went on a weekday and it wasn't crowded at all.
