Interesting. We were on a tour so had a tour guide to provide relevant info, which really assisted to appreciate everything we were seeing.
I’d recommend ensuring you also visit Odusan Unification Observatory to round off the north.v.south / reunification info and experience.

Yes, this place is everything from my headline - a mixture all of these.
It is the first place you'll stop on your DMZ tour.
You arrive at a huge parking lot with spaces for around hundred buses and a multi purpose building beside (offices, shopping, tourist info, eateries). There, your tour agency has to obtain the visit permit to enter DMZ. It's on a time slot basis, and permits are issued on a first come - first serve basis. From the assigned entry time your tour can stay 2,5 hours in DMZ.
Have in mind you will wait here AT LEAST two hours to get your permit. Unfortunately, we waited 5 hours - we arrived at 7 AM and got the noon 12 PM slot.
Imjingak Park offers several interesting attractions you should visit:
- Shrine to separated families oriented towards North Korea where refugees from North to South come on Thanksgiving to pay their respects to their ancestors and family members who stayed in NK. It has marble panels around with NK scenery and local life to remind them,
- Monument to reunited families in honor of the longest in history TV show which helped many families reunite,
- Two girls monument reminding on forced labor and sex slavery,
- old locomotive which was derailed due to war railway devastation,
- peace bell,
- freedom bridge and old bunker (small entry fee, yet interesting).
All the above are interesting and have historic value. You need around an hour to visit them leisurely.

I was surprised with a theme park, but our tour guide told us it was built for those families who come to pay their respects to have some fun also. Nevertheless, it looks odd here.
More commercialized stuff include souvenir shops with all kind of military souvenirs and you can also buy real North Korean money.

Cable car we didn't use. It is expensive and offers exactly the same views as from the bridge. It's a bit commercialized tourist trap. Have in mind North Korea is not on the other side of the cable car, but some 3 miles further away.

One of the easiest to reach DMZ areas in Paju! I have been to Imjingak about 5 times already and I am always excited to come back! Historical part of the museum, old train and the bridge of peace are great to learn about the history, but there is also an amusement park, nature facilities, some really cool cafes, peace park area and even cable cars (but we did not take the cable car). You could easily spend the whole day here, but I would mainly recommend it for couples or families with small children!

It’s recommendation from my friend when I visited Paju. It’s not easy to get here if you want to try public transportation because there is only one bus to get there. The bus stop in front of the entrance so that it will make easier for you to get back from where you calme from. You can stay for half day tour and have lunch there. As notification, you have to be back at 17.00 because it will be your last bus to the city center

Nice to explore prior to going on a DMZ tour. Lot's to see and do, very interesting to learn. Quite a few eateries as well. We spent about two hours here prior to visiting the DMZ.

The park is interesting, if bizarre, and you will find plenty to do here. But let start with the downside. We unfortunately arrived not knowing that the great Soy Bean market was in full swing. Parking attendants were waving their batons in all manner of confusing directions as though they were trying to increase the number of collisions. Meanwhile a steady and ant-like stream of old people with shopping trolleys were thronging towards the bean festival, which looked so downmarket that you likely required spectacles to really plumb the depths. Anyway, the rest of the park is very interesting. One section contains memorials and has a good rooftop viewpoint and a shop that advertises military souvenirs, though how dried fruit and fridge magnets can be considered defence materiel is puzzling. We enjoyed exploring the freedom bridge replica and taking the cable car to the old US Fort Greaves. You don't see much when you get over, but the whole experience at least adds up enough to make it worthwhile. You can take your dog here, as long as it likes old folk. there is a camp site as well, but I think you'd have to be low on options to consider it. All in all Imjingak Park is a good day trip from Seoul and its proximity to the DMZ adds that extra slice of excitement.

An educational park with various displays. It didn't really resonate with me. I'm glad I went, but I wouldn't return.

This was the first stop of our VIP half day morning tour of DMZ. We can see the Freedom bridge through which prisoners of war returned to South Korea. Also the hundreds of messages of peace and unification posted by South Koreans whose familes and friends have been separated from them and are now living in North Korea. Also on display is a steam locomotive riddled with more than 1,000 bullets, which serves as a grim reminder of the Koreannwar.

There was located beside Panmunjeom and the northernmost area in South Korea. The park had wide parking area, and exhibits about divided country's history. There was a part of our sad history, and included many meanings. There was good point to walk around with many history, and could view North Korea scenery.
