Showcasing Korea's War History:
This monumental edifice, opened in 1993, is dedicated to the commemoration of all those who participated in the many wars that led to the current nation. Located on the site of former army headquarters, it is the largest war museum in the world, with a collection of 13000 historic relics and records on display.
The black marble tablets, lining both sides of a long corridor, have been inscribed with the names of those who died in the Korean War, Vietnam war, and more recent clashes with North Korea, and includes fallen UN Forces militia.
The Statue of Brothers:
The breach in the sphere supporting the figures on top is to symbolize the Korea’s division consequent to the Korean War in 1953. The elder, taller figure is a South Korean soldier embracing and supporting a younger North Korean soldier.
