I spotted the museum while hiking on the hilltops and I immediately got curious. The curved shape of the facade stands out in it's surroundings. The harbour is full of activities and people having fun, especially children. A good place to take some photos.

Busan is a fishing and port town. This is a national museum and has history, beautiful models, and great things for kids to do and see, including an aquarium and interactive games allowing chilren, to their delight, to learn to sail! Loved it. Go!!!

Very interesting voice tour guide. Especially appreciated the 4th Floor about Marine industry and sustainable development. Entrance is free of charge and easy to get there by bus from MTR station Busan or Nampo. Closed on Mondays.

This museam is one of the few I've been in that has both Korean and English explanations of the exhibits, which makes it very foreigner friendly for those who speak English. The building itself is worth looking at, and the surrounding grounds offer opportunties to...More
