UN Memorial Cemetery Tours and Activities

UN Memorial Cemetery
The 35-acre (14-hectare) UN Memorial Cemetery is one of Busan’s most peaceful spots. Established in 1951, the quiet park and cemetery honors a total of 2,300 United Nations soldiers representing 16 countries who were killed during the Korean War. Manicured hedges and flower bushes add to the beautiful and somber sight.

The Basics
At the heart of the park lies the Main Cemetery Area, where soldiers from Australia, France, Canada, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Turkey, and the United States are interred. Visitors to the park can watch a short documentary on the Korean War, screened inside the multifaith chapel within Memorial Service Hall, while Memorabilia Hall serves as a small museum with photos and artifacts from the war. There is no admission fee to enter the cemetery.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The UN Memorial Cemetery is a must-visit for history buffs and those interested in the Korean War.
  • This cemetery is hallowed ground, so dress respectfully and keep your voice down.
  • Visitors are asked to keep off the grass and stay on the paved paths.

How to Get There
To reach the UN Memorial Cemetery, take Busan subway line 2 to Daeyeon Station. From there, it’s about a 15-minute walk (or short taxi ride) to the cemetery entrance.

When to Get There
The cemetery is open daily throughout the year, with extended hours from May to September. To soak up the serene atmosphere on the manicured grounds, avoid visiting on rainy or particularly hot days.

Wall of Remembrance
While the remains of many who died during the Korean War were returned to their home countries, all 40,896 names of the fallen (including those missing in action) are engraved in alphabetical order by country and name on the Wall of Remembrance within the cemetery, completed in 2006. Soldiers who are interred within the cemetery have a mark next to their names.
