Busan Modern Museum

This building housing the Busan Modern History Museum was used as the Busan Branch of the Oriental Development Company during the Japanese occupation and as the Busan USIS Cultural Center following the liberation of Korea. Busan Metropolitan City converted this building, a symbol of aggression and a site of painful history, into the Busan Modern History Museum to make it an educational space to inform Busan citizens and others of the modern history of the port city. The exhibition consists of the modern history of Busan suffering from the Japanese aggression and exploitations and the history of the Korea-U.S. relationship.
