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

There is so much space in the museum that allowed us to get away from crowds for an hour or so, but that also meant there is a lot of walking up and down stairs! Overall neatly presented museum that is worth going if you are in the area!

This museum gives its name to the nearby (300m) subway station, so if not anything else it is easy to find on the underground network (but you still need to be careful and go out of the correct (signposted) exit. All of its various entrances seem to play a game of hide and seek with the visitor (which may have... More

An excellent museum: free to enter and an extensive, varied, exhibition programme. I was impressed with range of work, all from the 21st century and from both home and abroad. The building is not a lot to look at and the ciculation spaces fail to inspire, but the exhibition spaces are large in size and in number. The size of... More

We visited in September 2013 when the featured artist was Shin Sang Ho - tile work and sculptures, referencing Star Trek and called Final Frontier. Appealing and thought provoking. We also were taken with 2 large cloud paintings by Kang Un and the extensive collection of Henry Miller paintings. A very disturbing charcoal collection about forced labour camps was quite... More

Museum is just a short walk away from the Busan Museum of Art station. Good exhibits from local artists and even got a chance to view some amazing collection from other famous artists like Warhol, Dali and many more. Its not a huge museum, so expect a good 1 hour or so. Had a choco patbingsu (redbean ice shaving topped... More
