  • Busan museum is always good. The program is good. If you are a foreigner, I recommend you to experience tea ceremony or a costume experience.
  • Best museum I visited in Busan! Balanced account and gave a full history of Busan! Informative and has English signs! Very well signposted! If you are a history nerd I would recommend visiting then visiting the UN memorial around the corner!
