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.

I have found little history in Busan predating the Korean war. It is almost as if all that was lost. This isn't a huge museum and parts are still being renovated, but between this and the Maritime musem, which is a national museum, I feel...More

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.
