    Quite an interesting experience learning Busan history and its development. Easy to come here by subway. The museum is free entrance and located beside UN Cemetary.
    Visited on Dec 2019.

    This is a small museum which is free to enter. It outlines Korean history under the Japanese and following independence, with a small exhibition about relations with America.

    A very interactive museum, it is fun and at the same time informative. I enjoyed a lot the green screen part were you got to act as if you were in a movie and choose any background. If you are interested in Korean/international movies I recommend this museum.

    The museum is build inside a building with a lot of history of Dong A University. Dong-A university is a famous university in Busan (and also in South Korea). It is really clean and well-laid out, but the location and usual displays don't make it worth the visit.

    The museum is not big but one can spend rather long time there. The walls, floor, ceiling are all screens. The exhibition was dedicated to the Earth day so we were moving among trees, tigers, whales slowly floating to a mesmerizing music. It was beautiful!

    This is a lovely museum to give visitors a taste of different Southeast Asian cultures. We were able to request a docent tour for our group. The permanent exhibition talks about art and traditions from all the ASEAN cultures. The current special exhibition shows different games and leisure activities from ASEAN cultures. There's also a virtual reality room so you can "visit" different sights. There are different virtual reality and interactive displays throughout the museum so you can take fun pictures. It's a fun and free way to spend a few hours!

    it's basically only a 1 hall of exhibition hall filled with miniature of ships from around the world. not really special, but enough to show the children and get them to know varieties of ships etc. with entrance fee of only 1 US$ per person, you've got nothing to loose.

    If you are into models and trains, this is a pretty cool place to visit... there are many cities around the world, trains and robots that are on display.

    This is a special, and for me spiritual, place. I had an amazing visit and awesomel experience here today. Rev Park and his wife kindly showed me the different exhibits they have collected and displayed in this wonderful museum. They have quite an extensive collection of artifacts, photographs, and other realia covering the Jewish people, Israel, and the Holocaust. Most of all, I really enjoyed talking with them. They are good people, and I believe they have dedicated themselves to educating people here in Korea about Israel, the Jewish people and the evil of the Holocaust. They were so nice to me. The world needs more people like them.

    some things are not labeled (or labeled wrong). Only 1000 if you go to the tower too so it's worth a few minutes, but without more signs I could not say longer--what was I looking at?

    1) This is literally a fantastic place — gallery of huge figures of different comic monsters, movie and anime characters made from metal junk. Many of them are very impressive.
    2) There is indoor and outdoor exposition. It's always something to look at, even if the gallery is closed.
    3) Gallery is held by the author of those sculptures and his wife. Feel free to talk with them.
    4) As I understand, there are small figures for sale.
