While on business, I went aight seeing and the war memorial of Korea was a must see and would definitely go visit again. Was a little upset that the shops closed an hour prior to the museum but would factor that into the next visit.

Enjoyed the War Memorial. Gave more insight on the war and got to see artifacts and listen to stories. Would recommend while in Seoul. You also don't need a tour guide to go and enjoy.

One of the initial rooms resembles a starry night, with a pensive in the middle. I found it moving, and it set the tone for the rest of the visit. Of course, the museum captures the spirit of the combined actions taken to keep the...More

You can take the subway and alight at Samgakji Station (Seoul Subway Line 6), Exit 11 or 12. It should be a few walks away from the exit.
