Pretty small musuem detailing Busan's history with free admission. OK for a 30 minute trip but you might be better off hitting a shopping area or the Busan Musuem of Modern Art if you want something more time consuming.

Unfortunately most of the exhibition halls were closed during my visit. But the museum has no admission fee and the park with some statues behind the museum is quite nice. Staff was friendly, information in english and chinese was available.

It was free entry, and I wondered why. Later I realised that a large part of the museum was closed for rebuilding, and that probably explained it. The few galleries that were open had some old sepia photographs of the city but little else. The...More

Half the museum is closed until 2017 and the half that is open is really not worth seeing Not a huge amount of articles to see and most of those that are on offer are behind glass - it really felt like a UK museum...More
