North Korea: Victorious Fatherland Liberation Museum (Korean War Museum)

Reading Time: 2 minutes

This museum focused on the Korean War. There were many captured American planes, jeeps and tanks inside as well as North Korean military vehicles.

Huge Kim Il Sung mural at the entrance to the museum.

Original army propaganda poster from the war.

The end of the tour was a 360 degree panorama of the Korean War. We were on a revolving platform in the middle. The backdrop was a huge canvas with three dimensional objects and real jeeps in the foreground to add depth. There was a similar panorama in the Korean war museum in Dandong, China but it wasn’t as good.
