Busan Museum is a museum located in Busan, South Korea, open since 1978.
The Busan Museum was designed to preserve the traditional culture of Busan through its collection of relics and historical art pieces. In 1995, it was founded as Busan Metropolitan Museum, and in May 2002, it was changed to Busan Museum following renovation and the opening of Exhibition Hall 2. A temporary capital memorial hall was opened in a detached building, which had previously served as the official residence of President Lee Myung-Bak. The museum displays items that were left by Barley Mills and President Lee Seung Man and primarily preserves relics of the history of Busan. In October 1996, a Bokcheon, a detached building, was opened to exhibit excavated relics from the Bokcheon Ancient Tomb, a tomb representative of Busan culture during the Three Kingdoms period. Exhibition Hall 2 displays a wide variety of relics, ranging from the Prehistoric Age to modern-day. In July 2003, Busan's Modern Museum was opened, which features Busan historic event exhibits, and also contains relics from the Goguryeo-Sui War.
The bus arrives at the station 'UN rotary'. By subway, the museum is close to Daeyeon Station gate 3. From gate 3, the museum area is about 10 minutes away by foot. In the museum region, there is a UN Memorial Park. In this park, there are several memorial related to the Korea War. This park is registered as cultural property of South Korea.

  • You should come here well prepared in case of snacks and drinks. Because there is no shop around this place. The museum explains the traditional Korean burial system and items used for it. Opposite to museum, we have a good greenish valley park, good place to relax and probably taking pics as well.
