International Friendship Exhibition, Hyangsan

Specialty Museum · Museum
View various gifts given to Korean leaders from dignitaries at International Friendship Exhibition. Pieces include a miniature mosque, an ivory lion, and even a bullet-proof limousine from Joseph Stalin. The museum complex has no windows, although you might not notice given its architectural style. On entrance, be prepared to take off your shoes, and guides might ask you to bow in front of the paintings of Kim Jong-il and Kim II-sung. In addition to valuable gifts from other former leaders, you can also see a copy of Bjork's album Volta, a VHS copy of Space Jam, and a basketball signed by Michael Jordan.

  • To be honest, all the long reviews from experienced travellers on here are pretty accurate so I won't repeat what's already been said. However the sheer scale of this place - the art works on offer...  more »

  • Some of the gifts are impressive with mosaics and statues made of precious stones and gold, some are as small as a cup of tea. But I felt sick watching all that with notes from communist groups around the world glorifying the rulers. It's like a proof for the north Korean people who have no access to the world that the regime is approved of by the international community..
  • Loved this place although i think Big Boy Kimmy wouldnt like it if he foud out the poepole were not being sent to a concentration camp after viewing. Wait OH YEAH THEY ARE HELPPPP MEEEEEEEEEEEEE
