  • Busan missing most of Japan I don't know what was destroyed in the Korean war, and left intact East Takushoku co., Ltd. at the time of this historic, it itself is valuable. You had a scene that chides the child and said that there are images in the tram, offers parent/child at the time of the Japan authorities arrested be!, impressive.

  • This place is also wrong to Busan. A lot of this to the children's Museum by the middle. Models and ... Also some game. The scale is small, but with the kids once.

  • It is a strong political element of East Takushoku co., Ltd. former company buildings using the facilities. Different positions but the same event differently Japan-language writing. And, the World War II Memorial-Liberation Day Ganghwa Island Convention = Ganghwa, colonial = Government Japan is the effect on the Korean peninsula has stated and the timing of the annexation of Korea in 1910, largely, not to mention the earlier stance, but from the late 1870's Strengthened the influence behind the military background is seen. Or how those facts to understand the sense of the contents.

  • Most of the exhibits here has English explanations. One can get a good basic understanding of the history of the development of Busan, which was accelerated by the Japanese colonization.
  • Very interesting museum, unfortunately most item descriptions are only in Korean and there is no audio guide, but all audiovisual elements are available translated or subtitled in English
  • Very informative history dating back to 6000 bce
  • Free museum. Lot of history to read
  • Full english, free, good information, nice videos, not that big
