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.

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

This is such an interesting and multi cultural experience, worth the trip to find this museum. The art pieces are fascinating.
