North Korea -> PYONGYANG -> Korean Central History Museum
Korean Central History Museum   
PYONGYANG, Pyongyang Municipality

The Korean Central History Museum was founded on December 1, 1945 upon the direction of President Kim Il Sung. To quote, “Under the wise leadership of the great leader Comrade Kim Il Sung and the Dear Leader Comrade Kim Jong Il, the Korean Central History Museum has become an authorized edifice of the national cultural heritage for giving patriotic education to the working people and students. It is also open to the foreigners and tourists to give them better knowledge of the Korean history.” Displayed in this museum in a well-regulated order are historical remains and materials showing the struggle and creative activities of our people in the long period from the old Stone Age to the March First Popular Uprising in 1919.”

Originally located on Moran Hill, it was moved to the present site in 1977. The museum is actually more interesting than it sounds, particularly if you are interested in early Korean history. It is conveniently located in Kim Il Sung Square across from the Korean Art Gallery and near the Grand People’s Study House. Its 19 rooms house over 100,000 historical relics.
