Busan Museum of Art

Feel inspired and challenged in one of Busan’s top modern art museums, where fascinating exhibitions, challenging pieces and a wide array of genres await.

The Busan Museum of Art is one of the city’s top cultural attractions. Explore the museum’s five floors, which are home to a vast and intriguing selection of local art showing the variety and creativity of the city’s artists.

Busan is a hive of artistic talent and the city is teeming with art galleries of all sizes which cover a broad selection of media. The Busan Museum of Art, which opened its doors in 1998, stands at the forefront of modern artistic expression and should be a top priority on a cultural tour of the city. Set aside plenty of time to wander this huge space.

In addition to the five floors, visit the outdoor sculpture park, which is home to some interesting pieces. Wander through the main collection and discover its five sections, which are dedicated to topics such as Modern and Contemporary Busan Art, Contemporary Chinese Art and Vietnamese Art.

While the museum offers a space for local artists to display their creativity, it is also heavily involved in exchanges with artists around the world. Look for pieces from international artists in some of the temporary exhibits.

The museum offers a wide range of educational courses and arts courses for both children and adults; however, these course are held in Korean. Cultural events are also hosted in this large space. These include traditional Korean dance and music performances. Visit Busan at the right time and enjoy one of the mobile displays that the museum often curates around the city.

The Busan Museum of Art offers parking facilities for a fee. Entry into the museum is free for all, though some exhibitions may have an admission fee. Visit the museum between Tuesday and Sunday. Leave time to make the most of the facilities, which include a café and a gift store.
