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

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
