Koryo Museum, Kaesong
Categories: History Museums, Museums
See over 1,000 relics and artifacts at Koryo Museum, which depicts the traditions and culture during Koryo dynasty rule. Once a Confucian educational school, the museum now offers exhibitions showing former buildings on the grounds and highlighting its architectural style through Korean history. Take a stroll around the spacious park with ancient trees, which surrounds the hut-like houses and small monuments. See the coffin of King Kongmin, which--though damaged--still features murals on the side. Because of its significant history, couples visit the site on their wedding day. Guides assist in translation of Korean documents. The site also includes a gift shop, which offers postcards, stamps, and other items.

Just one hour after visiting DMZ in Kaesong is this landmark. Interesting. Not so many history objects. You will always go here, want it or not...that's what all north korea tours are all about
The grounds were peaceful and the exhibits (possibly because of the time period they depicted) had much less of the political rhetoric that becomes overwhelming at times.
