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.

The museum contains two exhibition rooms, one about the earliest history of the surroundings of Busan. The second is (or was) about the relationship with Japan. This exhibition is now closed and will not re open until 2017.
