Sinchon Museum of American War Atrocities (Massacre) North Korea
This museum is very controversial and the facts of the massacres occurring in 1950 in the entire state are debatable. I am presenting here photographs of the museum without comment as to the facts. Some of the displays contained hair of the victims as well as their personal possessions.

This link is for an audio file that I made of the tour of the Museum. It runs 41:55.

This article from July 2010 shows that some recognition is coming to light:

Below is a statement from the DPRK on the museum.

Sinchon County in South Hwanghae Province is a place where the US imperialists and their stooges committed the atrocities of mass murder while the Korean People's Army was carrying out a strategic temporary retreat during the Korean war (June 1950-July 1953).
During their occupation of Sinchon for 52 days (October 17-December 7, 1950) the US aggressors slaughtered 35,383 people, a quarter of the total population of the county.
The Sinchon Museum indicts to the whole world the bestial atrocities by the cutthroats.
The museum consists of 16 rooms in the main hall and 3 rooms in Hall No. 2 and outside inspection sites.
On display in the museum are materials on the crimes committed by the US imperialist aggressors who have invaded Korea from one hundred and scores of years ago, on their atrocities in Sinchon and other areas when the KPA was carrying out a strategic temporary retreat and on their indiscriminate bombing on towns and villages and germ and chemical warfares during the Korean war and on brutal slaughter of people committed by the US imperialists and their stooges in south Korea up to now since the war.
The US imperialist aggressors arrested and killed people at random, irrespective of the old and young in Sinchon.
They locked up over 900 innocent people in the air-raid shelter of the former Sinchon County Party Committee (now the Sinchon Museum) and burned them to death. They herded more than 520 inhabitants into the air-raid shelter of the former Sinchon County Militia Station, blocked its entrance and blew it up with a pre-installed explosive to murder them all.
When all air-raid shelters were filled with corpses the aggressors drove other inhabitants in the trenches near the air-raid shelter of the county Party committee and buried them alive or shot them to death.
Over 2,000 people were killed on the short Soktang Bridge between mid-October and late November.
The aggressors were on strict guard at the approach to the bridge. They captured all who tried to cross it and cut off their heads with swords, bayoneted them or shot them to death, drowning them in the river. They dragged people from other villages to the bridge and drowned them with bayonets. The river was dyed with blood and filled with dead bodies.
The aggressors locked up 102 children and 400 mothers in two powder magazines in Wonam-ri and poured gasoline over them and set fire to them.
Their massacres in Sinchon reached a culmination in brutality.
In May Juche 40 (1951) and March Juche 41 (1952) the Investigation Commissions of the International Democratic Women's Federation and the International Association of the Democratic Lawyers visited Sinchon and emphatically condemned the US imperialists' crimes.
A member of the Investigation Commission of the IDWF said:
'The atrocities committed by the US imperialists in Korea far surpassed those committed by Hitler Nazis, The US imperialist cutthroats resorted to the brutal methods of murder through long torments, sawing, burning and dismembering people. No vicious human killers like Yankees are in the world."
The Korean people never forget the brutal atrocities committed by the US imperialists and are full of a firm determination to revenge upon them a hundred and thousand fold if they invade Korea again.
