    This is probably one of the better modern art museums in South Korea, and a perfect place to spent a lazy Saturday or Sunday afternoon. The attached restaurant id good but pricey so try the foodtrucks nearby in the sculpture park as a yummy, cheaper alternatives. Some exhibitions require additional payment, but you should be able to get right around in a leisurely 2hrs.

    instead am somewhat dulled. Everything is somewhat here: somewhat lifeless, somewhat colorless, somewhat powerless... except music: whicu mostly fugitive. So I sing. I'm so hedonistic: I want to overload on it all.. like those crystals. The staff: All in black and somewhat neon yellow. Somewhat less indifferent than those out there. Where did I want to go? I should leave too if I want, and I do. I see something now that should be only half there. I guess I am confused. WAIT: a kid at the snackbar played rock-paper-scissors with me. He somewhat made my day. An extra mark for MOCA.

    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 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!

    Beautiful building and great exhibition space with well curated shows of first class artists.
    The space opposite the main building is also worth visiting. Don't miss it.

    Lovely surprise, on my way back from Haedong Yonggung Temple, I stopped over at the Radium Art center. It's a small art gallery with few rooms but with so much exclusive art creation from The french photographer Villers. Also, what makes this art gallery so exceptional, is the kindness of the director, she used to know personally Villers and around an espresso she can tell you or explain so many things about the exposition. The art gallery being a bit small, and if you are not an absolute fan of photography i truly advise to couple this visit with other activities around (there are tons of them)

    The museum is far from the city. It took me 1hour by subway from my hotel in Jungang-dong. Once you alight from the subway station Hwamyeong, you have to walk about 10 to 15minutes to find it near the railway station Hwamyeong. The place surrounding was quiet as within a residencial and hotels area.
    The museum has 3 floors. It shows from the traditional way of fishing till today's fishing vessels. It is actually very educational especially for schools (there was a group of primary students at the time of my visit). For me, it should show more of the different technics from the past till today as the museum seems to lack of content. There was a shark and its anatomy at the entrance which I wasn't too sure why it was there. The visit is free. There was no English guide (phamphlet) but it was fine for me. There was an impressive maquette of an ancient fishing village. Pity that there was not enough of light to show it. Overall, I like it but too little content for a long trip.

    We had never heard of Busan untill we got there. On of the largest ports of the world makes this tower worth its visit. Once in the tower one can see so many vessels on sea waiting to make land. This gives you a grasp of the immensity of the port.
