Lonely Planet review
The Party Founding Museum is located on the southern slope of Haebang Hill and is one of the least interesting museums. It originally housed the Central Committee of the Korean Workers' Party, as well as Kim Il Sung's office from where he 'led the building of a new democratic Korea'. Next door is the Great Leader's conspicuously modest residence, used after coming to power and presumably before the masses demanded he build himself numerous palaces.
