The War Museum in Pyongyang serves to promulgate the North Korean version of the war. We were met by a stout museum guide who, like almost all of her colleagues in NK, spoke no English and seemed to be delivering a memorized monologue.
Haeju Historical Museum
Haeju Historical Museum opened in 1949 and has maintained its heritage for 60 years. The museum displays a collection of ancient Korean pottery from the area and a variety of golden Buddha statues. This museum falls under the same category as the top 5 museums located in North Korea including the Central Historical Museum in Pyongyang and Kaesong Museum, Sariwon Museum and Chongjin Museum.
North Korea Peace Museum
The North Korea Peace Museum is in the building constructed to house the signing of the Korean War Armistice Agreement on 27 July 1953. It is located in the former village of Panmunjeom (P'anmunj?m) in Gyeonggi province, North Korea. It is located approximately 500 m. north of the Joint Security Area (JSA), in the northern half of the Demilitarized Zone. The building is all that remains of the former village, and since the mid 1950s, references to Panmunjom actually refer to the Joint Security Area itself.
