Entrance to the War Memorial of Korea

The War Memorial of Korea is a large memorial that commemorates the victims of the Korean War and other wars throughout the history of the country. When the memorial was opened on June 10, 1994 it was the largest of its kind in the world. It took the hard work and research of countless numbers of experts from all different fields to make this museum possible.

The present day building is located where the headquarters of the Korean Infantry once stood.

Surrounding the building is Memorial Hall. It is here where the names of those who lost their lives during the Korean War are inscribed. The names are never ending and this one exhibit is a frightening reminder of how brutal, and deadly, war truly is.

Other exhibits include the War History Exhibit, Korean War Exhibit, Expeditionary Forces Exhibit, ROK Armed Forces Exhibit, Defense Industry Exhibit, and Large Military Equipment Exhibit.

The Large Military Equipment Exhibit found outside features planes, tanks, and other equipment used during the Korean War by both south and north and the United States.
