War Memorial Museum

Korea's War Memorial Museum is one of the finest museums I have seen.  The country's military history from the earliest times to the present is covered.  Every Korean schoolchild is required to visit the museum.  Most of them are learning English and are eager to practice.  After meeting a group of children inside, they offered me part of their picnic lunches as I toured the outside exhibits.
