Whew! Sorry for the delay, but life has been crazy around here. I think juggling all of the things that life throws at you is the hardest part of blogging. You can’t just take a break when you want to.
In part two of the War Memorial of Korea, we get to see the outside grounds of the museum. It’s a huge property and there are lots of things to see!
The front of the museum has a lot of statues for you to look at. My favorite statue was of one South Korean and one North Korean soldier embracing to symbolize two families coming back together. It was very powerful.
I actually took my class to see the War Memorial of Korea as a field trip and we had a beautiful picnic lunch. The outside of the museum is very interactive and there are rockets, airplanes, tanks and even a boat that you can see up close and even go inside. If you go during certain parts of the day, you can even see soldiers doing trainings which is always a crowd pleaser!
The boat and tanks are the funnest part, because you can go inside of them and play with their controls. You can even pretend to use the machines. The boat still has the bullet holes showing and the kids were really interested in them.
I’ve never had the chance to see this many military machines up close. They have a huge amount used during World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War, including armored vehicles, tanks, field artillery, air crafts, submarines and a rocket launcher. The huge garden and waterfall are a beautiful backdrop to walk around while browsing. I loved it!
Q: Have you visited a military museum?
