1) Strange museum — almost no visitors on a week day, building is quite big, but exhibitions are tiny. Lot of empty space without people. 2) Closed on mondays. 3) Free admission for permanent exhibition. 4) Children' museum.

The building is not that special for a museum of art, but this does not matter because the two exhibitions we saw were nice. The museum only has temporary exhibitions. Whether you enjoy the place, it really depends. And I am the lucky one. Try the pumpkin latte at the restaurant. It is actually milk with pumpkin. This special drink... More

Pleasantly surprised with the theme of the Busan Biennale and the exhibition in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Lee Jung Seob. Both exhibitions were impeccably curated and it was enjoyable just wandering around and learning more about Korean art. Definitely worth a visit if you are an art lover. The museum is closed on Mondays though so do take... More

This museum doesn't have a permanent exhibition. It offers room to temporary exhibitions for which you pay separately. So when you enter the museum make sure you buy a ticket for an exhibition which interests you. Otherwise you end up paying an amount of money (we payed 12.000 won per person) for something which isn't your cup of tea.

when we arrived, all the exibhits other than the "statue garden" were closed, so we went to look at the statues. Let's just say we soon found our way out of there.

We had read that this was quite a good shelter from the rain, otherwise not a key sight, however, it was disappointing. When we walked in, we were told that they were setting up their next exhibition so I thought that we would just see the permanent exhibition, which did not exist!!! I'd look up the website next time!!

Well designed, airy, spacious. Take your time to explore the exhibits, indoors and outdoors. Lots of seating made available on every floor. The gift shop is a disappointment though. Sells more touristy bric a brac with highly inflated prices vs souvenirs of the artwork exhibits at the gallery.

Excellent museum, mostly with modern and contemporary art from local artists. Also hosts some temporary exhibitions by some foreign artists. Nice and modern building. It is free entrance. Not all information is in English.
