New building behind Yanggakdo is a museum for the hotel

Museum construction nearly complete, though larger building still unfinished after four years

A recently constructed building behind Pyongyang’s Yanggako Hotel will be a museum commemorating the hotel itself, visitors to the country told NK News.

Satellite imagery of the site shows the building was constructed between May 2015 and the same month this year. The external part of the building now appears complete.
