Pyongyang Exhibition House of Culture



The Pyongyang Exhibition House of Culture is one of the locations where you can buy souvenirs such as artworks, ceramics, books, dvd’s, handmade items and traditional Korean gifts.


It is located in central Pyongyang behind the Party Foundation Monument.

It is spread over first and second floor of the red apartment block made to look like a flag with the Korean characters on top.


Visiting the Pyongyang Exhibition House of Culture is a good place to check out if you’re looking to see as many souvenirs and locally produced artworks as possible in your search for the perfect North Korean item to take home.

On the ground floor of the building is the shop selling traditional Korean gifts such as metal bowls & cutlery, hand crafted items and local produce.

The second floor is more gallery than shop with various artworks on display, but with the exception of the photos & paintings of North Korea’s leaders, are all for sale.

It is common to find the artist in residence here working on a piece.

Check on the spot for costs of items you are interested in purchasing.
