War Memorial of Korea 전쟁기념관

The War Memorial of Korea.

Here are a few photos from my visit to the War Memorial of Korea 전쟁기념관, a military history museum in Yongsandong, Seoul, not far from the American military base. It is strange to have a memorial for a war that isn’t over—but hey, what else would you call it?
