Victorious Fatherland Liberation War Museum information
Perhaps the best museum in Pyongyang; here you’ll see the key battles of the Korean War depicted vividly in dioramas, and there’s some fascinating military hardware ranging from war-damaged tanks and aircraft to torpedo boats used by both sides. These huge trophies of war were all placed in the basement and the museum was then built around them. Nearby, opposite the little Potong tributary of the Taedong, there’s the impressive Monument to the Victorious Fatherland Liberation War , unveiled in 1993 to mark the 40th anniversary of the war’s end. The sculptures reflect the different battles of the war; the Victory Sculpture is the centrepiece.
