War Memorial

The War Memorial was completed in June, 1996 - making it one of Korea's most up-to-date attractions. There are both outdoor and indoor displays across this huge complex. Not just about the 1950-53 'Korean war', the memorial covers approximately 2000 years of Korean history. There are various special exhibitions throughout the year plus an Army honor guard parade every Friday morning from 10-11:50. The parade even features a swordsmanship competition.War Memorial
