    The Museum is up to date, which you can think of. After a short tour in the Aussgengelände, where photos are allowed. It's very nicely designed Museum. Next to small exhibitions and artifacts, there are many information about the war. Right at the beginning, a film was shown which shows who started the war. Although this covers not quite with the Western history, attended very impressively. Many things from the war are on display, which shows the horror.

    Full on propaganda here. The whole place is vast just the walk up is something to see. A massive building inside but most of it was off limits and in the dark. We had to sit and watch a 10 minute film about how the Korea war, interesting to see what there version of the conflict was. Strictly no photos aloud in here but I got a few.

Where to stay in Pyongyang

Hotels remain just about the only form of accommodation in Pyongyang, with options ranging from budget stays to luxury complexes featuring restaurants, shopping, and even casinos. The one budget hotel is often filled, but on the other end of the spectrum, the capital has many more mid-range to pricey options with exciting amenities, including one that operates a casino out of the basement of its 47-story structure.
