The museum has a large number of exhibits depicting the modern history of Korea (about last 100 years) including its invasion. There are many interesting exhibits especially photographs. Entry is free.

It is not a premium museum but reflects the history and the culture of the city. There are exhibitions from abroad as well. Nice to visit.

Pretty small musuem detailing Busan's history with free admission. OK for a 30 minute trip but you might be better off hitting a shopping area or the Busan Musuem of Modern Art if you want something more time consuming.

Unfortunately most of the exhibition halls were closed during my visit. But the museum has no admission fee and the park with some statues behind the museum is quite nice. Staff was friendly, information in english and chinese was available.
