Established in April 1982 to commemorate the 70th birthday of President Kim Il Sung, this monumental structure serves as the backdrop to Kim Il Sung Square.

Encompassing an expansive area exceeding 100,000 square meters, this ten-story building stands as an exquisite example of traditional Korean-style architecture.

Beyond its architectural prowess, the institution serves as a hub for the dissemination of scientific, technical, and cultural knowledge, functioning as a tertiary education facility.

Equipped with a library housing tens of millions of books, along with 20 spacious reading rooms, 10 lecture rooms, and an additional 600 rooms, including information rooms, question-and-answer spaces, foreign language lecture rooms, a capacious general lecture hall accommodating 800 seats, and a music room—the facility is a comprehensive center for intellectual exploration.

On average, more than 10,000 individuals grace the palace each day, either engaging in self-directed study or participating in enlightening lectures.

For those seeking panoramic views of the picturesque Pyongyang, the 6th-floor observatory balcony provides a breathtaking bird’s-eye perspective.
