Pleasantly surprised with the theme of the Busan Biennale and the exhibition in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Lee Jung Seob. Both exhibitions were impeccably curated and it was enjoyable just wandering around and learning more about Korean art. Definitely worth a visit if you are an art lover. The museum is closed on Mondays though so do take... More

This museum doesn't have a permanent exhibition. It offers room to temporary exhibitions for which you pay separately. So when you enter the museum make sure you buy a ticket for an exhibition which interests you. Otherwise you end up paying an amount of money (we payed 12.000 won per person) for something which isn't your cup of tea.

when we arrived, all the exibhits other than the "statue garden" were closed, so we went to look at the statues. Let's just say we soon found our way out of there.

We had read that this was quite a good shelter from the rain, otherwise not a key sight, however, it was disappointing. When we walked in, we were told that they were setting up their next exhibition so I thought that we would just see the permanent exhibition, which did not exist!!! I'd look up the website next time!!

Well designed, airy, spacious. Take your time to explore the exhibits, indoors and outdoors. Lots of seating made available on every floor. The gift shop is a disappointment though. Sells more touristy bric a brac with highly inflated prices vs souvenirs of the artwork exhibits at the gallery.

It was a rainy day, and I did not feel like going to a variety of places that morning. After a visit to Shinsegae Department Store, the Busan Museum of Art was in the same neighborhood, so I thought I would stop by. The end result did not disappoint. I am so happy I paid this Museum a visit. There... More

The size of the museum is quite big but their exhibits really not so interesting and attractive. However, the park around the museum is much more beautiful and attractive. It is because it was autumn time when I visited it. Red maples leaves was so eye-catching.

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.
