Freedom Protection Peace Museum

Freedom Protection Peace Museum is situated within Soyosan Mountain’s parking lot. The main museum building consists of three stories, whereas the annex building is dedicated to Doctor Lee Ho-wang, the man who discovered Hantaan Virus. Fighter planes, tanks, and other weapons are displayed out in the open. The second floor of the main building is devoted to the United Nations Forces that participated in the Korean War. Soldiers from 21 different countries are recreated based on historic facts as well as the details on each country’s force. Only a few people would know that Ethiopia had sent over 3,000 soldiers as part of the United Nations forces.
