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.

  • Besides the beautiful natural surroundings you will be able to see some of the more bizarre presents that Kim received. On all wins the bear head of Ceausescu. For fans of the genre will be very interesting to recognize the Communist leaders in photographs.

  • 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
