Would you get married at a war memorial / museum?

I recently learned that one of Korea’s more popular tourist attractions, the War Memorial of Korea, also has a wedding hall.

It seems strange to me that you would pass all the planes and artillery on the way to a wedding. Of course it also seemed strange to me that they had a Barbie exhibit when I visited the museum in 2006.

Anyway, I’ve yet to speak with a Korean who doesn’t find this pretty odd – this wedding hall in the back of the war memorial. And I have to wonder, who would decide to get married there?

    Um…I got married in “Memorial Park” but it is a really pretty park and we were sure that the bronze guys with guns were not in any of the pictures, it was really about the big oak tree and the city it was in…
