Everything was closed except one exhibit with sketches and the museum shop. I'm sure this place would be nice if the art was actually on display. I would definitely call to find out how many exhibits are open first.

Certainly worth 1.5-2.5 hours of your time to walk through two floors of exhibits. the Korean art on the 3rd floor was something new; obvious connections to Chinese art in the (much) older exhibits. Currently there's an exhibition of German art on the 2nd floor, some of which was quite interesting as well. All this said, some of the "modern... More

This is such an interesting and multi cultural experience, worth the trip to find this museum. The art pieces are fascinating.

We went to the Busan Museum of Art on a rainy afternoon before leaving Busan for Gyeongju. We had less than an hour to spend in the museum (as it takes at least 45 minutes to go to Busan station), which we really regretted once we arrived at the museum. The museum basically has two floors displaying artworks (above the... More

Wow, we really enjoyed the visit to this museum. The art shown is very interesting because the upper floor is reserved for Korean artists. Also the outside area with the sculptures is very interesting. This museum was one of the highlights of our trip to Busan.

The Busan Museum of Art, which charged no admission fee, was a very refreshing and soul-strengthening experience. Museum staff explained the system in English and gave me a map and guides to the collection, also in English. The exhibition, "Line, Color, and Space of Korea", was a very nice variety of works from the Museum's collection, curated along those themes.... More

I went through the Busan Museum of Art somewhat against my will - I have no interest in art, my wife does... Those who legitimately appreciate the paintings will probably believe a visit to be of more value than I did. The museum is not tiny but it isn't large either. I could have walked through and seen everything in... More
