  • 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...

  • This place was more interesting than I though. If you're on this island give this place a try. Learn about Korean War, the prisoners and the hardships of war. Try the zipline and let children explore history in an easy way. If you have time (I didn't) take the monorail to the top of the mountain for an amazing view.
  • Good place for family, especially local Korean. Good to know the history of North-South Korea war times, but some of the information is in Korean only. Even videos does not have any subtitles. The zipline was awesome too as not many museum kind of place have this kind of entertainment.
  • Exhibits and displays depicting life as a POW during the Korean war from 1950 to 1953. This POW camp was the largest. Geoje island was chosen as the other of POW camps filled to capacity. There were as many as 165000 POWs during the camps heyday. 7000 won per person entry, 2000 won parking (Oct, 2020).
  • Definitely place to see when you are in the City. Great piece of history shown in very interesting way.
  • I anticipated a more serious experience, but it wasn't. It felt like I was at an amusement park at times. There was a monorail and zipline experience for anyone who wanted to wait.
