  • In Korea, the Korean War remains lived in the present. To dedicate a museum to him would be justified in this way. The luxury of this museum is impressive, even if the presentation of the exhibits, or the war catches "date" these events in the past. It is a pity that the Victory of 53 is not the starting point for a more peaceful development. Photos banned inside. The new and the old museum are connected, and we visit the two.

  • The museum is a modern, interesting moving 3D panorama. But the information leaves the impression of one-sidedness. Not a word about the fact that Soviet pilots made 63,000 sorties on MIG-15, 2000 air battles; that 120 of our pilots were killed (and a total of 299 of them were killed by 146 officers). The panorama mentions that 64 aviation corps entered the battle and it was decisive, but that it was the Soviet corps - did not sound. Involuntarily you begin to doubt about the rest of the information.
