Lonely Planet review
Pyongyang's museums unsurprisingly offer the regime's version of history. While one or two can be very interesting for a totally new perspective on events, the novelty can soon wear thin. A visit to the Korean Revolution Museum is likely to be included on your itinerary. This shows the anti-Japanese struggle, including numerous action exhibits depicting the fiercest of the battles.
