  • 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
  • Full english, free, good information, nice videos, not that big
  • Small but cool place to kill some time
  • Interesting and rich history of busan
