Probably one of the better modern art museums in Korea. The exhibits were interesting and varied, mostly early 2000's works from Korean artists (unfortunately all of the piece descriptions were in Korean regardless of the artist). Not sure if there is seasonal renovations, as when...More

The main building has a few small exhibitions and is free, although several floors were closed, including the main sculpture garden. However, the Lee Ufan annex is worth the visit if you like his work, with walk-through sculptures of starkly lit boulders, white gravel floors,...More

Two exhibits were advertised, but they filled maybe 10% of the museum, which was otherwise as empty as a new fridge. So unless current exhibits sound compelling, it's not worth your time.

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.

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...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...More

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.
