This was a small art museum but still nice. Very clean and quite. There was enough space to really enjoy all the art pieces in space.

We had to kill some time before we could meet my brother in Geoje island so we took the subway to the museum with no trouble and wandered through this wonderful free museum. Well worth the trip to it, learn a lot about the Korean history.

This Museum was part of our excursion off the Mariner of the Seas in early October. It is not a big place and we went through it with time to spare. We found some of the artifacts and set-ups provided an interesting insight into Korea, not having visited before, but felt more could have been made of it. The museum... More

Busan Museum is focused on the history and artifacts of Busan and the surrounding area.It's not very large. Lots of interesting artifacts but if you've been to any other museum in Korea, nothing will be new. If you've been to the National museum in Seoul, don't bother going. It's not terribly far from the train station. I happened to go... More

I took this as part of the Hop on hop off city (BUTI) tour. it was one of the stops so I decided to pass by anyway. The interval between buses was one hour which is just about enough time to see the entire museum. It's a bit dated, but there's a good attention to the details about the history... More

this tiny museum has a lot to give. I enjoyed walking thru and reading about the beginnings of the city I have come to love.Be advised this is a history museum and not an art museum but still well worth the experience.

You can learn a lot about the development of civilization in the region and the history of Busan by going to this museum. It is free of charge, open every day and sometimes there are special exhibits. Next to UN Peace Park.

This free museum (closed Mondays) tells the history of Busan beginning with the earliest prehistoric residents through the Joseon time, then the Japanese Colonial era, and finally the Korean War and today. Really glad we came here. Excellent museum! Lockers (free) available so you don't have to carry your bags. Plenty of English signage and brochures. There's also a museum... More
