These walls list the Koreans killed in wartime.

Are those turtle boats on the floor? Those are so cool. I was always sad that we never got a 5-won coin with a turtle boat on it. (We do, however, have three 1-won coins. Talk about piddling small change.)

Looks like an interesting museum. (My husband would like the armor.) I've been to Independence Hall near Chonan a couple of times. (I avoided the hall of tortures--recreations of some practices during the Japanese occupation. That was disturbing.)

Helena: I don't even know what a turtle boat is. It was a fun day!

There's a statue of Admiral Yi Sun Shin in the middle of an intersection in Seoul--near Kyung Bok Gung, I think. It's right by the big Kyobo bookstore.
