  • Historic Park of Geoje POW Camp is one of the most random theme parks I’ve visited. The grounds were actually a POW Camp during the Korean War but the vibe of the place is nothing like a World War...

  • My husband and I visited this former POW Camp and really enjoyed it. Most of the exhibits were also written in English and were so riveting. We think that teens would also enjoy this place, largely...

  • The park itself is interesting, but I expected a little bit more of it. And I was hoping it would give a little bit more information about the war as well. And also very disappointing is the fact that most information is only displayed in Korean and only a few signs have the information in English.
  • This is a decent park/ outdoor museum of the POW camp on Geoje-do that the US Army operated during the Korean War. Most people know nothing about this camp so it's a good entry-level introduction to POW operations during the war. It's also built on the site of the original camp with some of the original ruins still on display. This park is a bit run-down and needs a cosmetic facelift but overall worth a trip to learn a bit about this aspect of the Korean War.
