At time for my visit, there was exhibition of religious treasures of Israel and the guide was so kind to explain us all details and spent with us about an hour and draw our attention to the historical point. The Ulsan museum is well-established and location is very convenient just next to Ulsan Grand park.

The Ulsan Museum which is very easily accessible is located adjacent to the Ulsan Grand Park, Nam-gu (further up from Gonguptap Rotary). Entrance is free for the general exhibits. Some exhibition areas are subject to a fee. Tickets can be obtained on the ground floor. The only downside is that most exhibits are in Korean language with minimal English translation.... More

Housing in a building of really interesting, modern architecture, it is divided in two parts (excluding the temporary exhibitions): History and Technology. So, it demonstrates the past and the present of Ulsan area. It is not a must-see spot, however, if you have more time after your visit in Ulsan Grand Park, a pass through the museum will get you...

Not a bad museum. It's not extremely large, but moderate sized. Of course being in Korea; the exhibit's are dominantly in Korean. The exhibit that I saw did contain a decent amount of English and there were many interesting artifacts on display.

It helps you understand so much of Korean culture. Their history and AMAZING comeback after the Korean War is fascinating.

The museum is fairly new. The first time went it had just opened that summer ( August 2011). They have free events one saturday a month. The showcases are interesting and some are translated into English. Its very small now but growing. I haven't tried the restaurant but I heard its really good.

After visiting the Ulsan Whale Museum, I did not have my hopes up for the Ulsan Museum. I mean really, how much history could Ulsan really have? Well, it turns out that it has a lot and the museum also hosts exhibits from other countries as well turning what could have been a huge waste of money into an elegant... More
