It had a couple of sparse galleries, not very much to see really. The children's area had a few magnet boards with some shapes on it. There was a few statues of dogs peeing around the place and a spot for children to colour. Not worth the fee ( it was free). There was a gallery for a fee of... More

This museum has art on level two and three with a kids area on the B1 level. It's free to visit but special exhibits will have a fee. There's enough to occupy about 30 minutes max so if you're looking for something to do and have low expectations, this is an option. The art is very redundant.

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

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
