It is not a premium museum but reflects the history and the culture of the city. There are exhibitions from abroad as well. Nice to visit.

We did not get to see inside the Museum itself on the day we were there - but we did enjoy a walk around the grounds. As with so much in Busan, it is quite surprising how the old and new blend together and a...More

Unfortunately most of the exhibition halls were closed during my visit. But the museum has no admission fee and the park with some statues behind the museum is quite nice. Staff was friendly, information in english and chinese was available.
