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.

It was a good experience to look around the art museum. They regularly change their theme, so it has many various paintings to enjoy. The entree fee was free, so you just need to select the tickets from the machine.
English website is quite confusing. The words are English but meaning isn't which is difficult since you need to pre-book timed tickets for exhibits on different floors. One staff person gave me a ticket and said to wait for two hours on benches in the lobby but another gave me an immediate timed ticket to the second floor exhibit. Thank you! The art was from Korean collectors. Cafeteria hits included maple cream cheese waffles and vanilla latte coffee.
Biggest public Art Gallery in Busan. Free entrance and free view. Usually modern art. surely recommended. It's free!!! Why nit.
Definitely worth a visit. The free exhibition offers a great view into Busan's local socio-economic history. However, the free exhibition seems to be a little more focused on history than to better shed light on the evolution of artistic sensibilities, aesthetics, philosophy and style of the various pieces. More could be done to also shed light on the artistic traditions from which the featured artists drew their inspiration/training from. Still, it's worth spending an hour or so checking it out.
An excellent museum of contemporary art with lots of amazing exhibitions. Great sculpture garden and a separated Lee Ufan space, which in itself is a rare experience of concentration and contemplation.
