I have been there in April 2016 and it was closed for constructions. Looked as if it takes a while until they are finished. Wir waren im April 2016 dort - geschlossen wegen Bauarbeiten. Sah auch so aus, als würde das noch eine Weile brauchen.

Of all the War Memorials, the Korean War Memorials give a true feel for what it was like for active military. The look of fierce focus and determination along with some sense of fear makes it very realistic. A MUST SEE at night as it is a totally different experience once the sun goes down,

This is the same as Korean war museum. In this museum you can see the Chinese point of view of the Korean war, whereas the States was aiding South Korea and China was aiding North Korea. It gives you another perspective of seeing an historical event.

Although this museum is still slightly biased, it is still an overall fair account of the Korean War. Free to enter and with a lot to see it's definitely worth a visit if you are interested in the Forgotten War.
