  • This wonderful little Museum will not be everyones cup of tea, however the story it tells is a drama worthy of Hollywood. The museum holds the salvaged bullet riddled hulk of a North Korean Hot Rod...  more »

  • I happened upon the Museum by chance, not expecting to see anything of great interest....boy was I wrong! As I entered, I was approached by an older gentleman with wonderful English who asked if he could show me around the Museum. What I received was a personal tour!! The gentleman was very informative with a dry sense of humour, very unexpected. The Museum houses a North Korean spy boat that the Japanese Coast Guard salvaged from the sea floor after a 'cat and mouse' chase that was ended by the Nth Korean spies when they exploded their vessel and committed suicide.
  • I don't think I've been to a museum so focused on a single exhibit before. I spent a fantastic half hour being given a tour by a very helpful guide.
