A total of 1.14 million of Busan citizens signed to establish the Busan National Science Museum. Considering the 3.5 million population of Busan, you can imagine how much the citizens wanted to have a local science museum. With such a huge interest and support, the Busan National Science Museum was established with the design of a ship as if it wishes to sail away with future scientists.
The shape of the Busan National Science Museum also resembles a small space base. As you enter the building, you will appreciate its large space with an open view. The silver Dynamic Slide, stretching from the second floor down to the first floor, will grab your attention more than anything else. After going down the slide, you will find cute robots dancing in front of them.
The museum is full of amazing experience exhibits and interesting programs. Various programs include the Walk on the Surface of the Moon in which children can try to walk at zero G, Gyroscope to make you turn round and round, Seat Belt Simulator to teach children the importance of wearing seat belts, Aviation Simulator and so on. These exciting experience facilities will completely capture children’s hearts.
The food court is situated in a green grass field. After finishing a meal and leaving the food court, you will find a large white dome outside. It is the Planetarium where you can enjoy observing constellations on its supersized projection dome screen, even in midday!
Along with the permanent exhibition hall, the museum provides special exhibitions with diverse themes and educational programs. Let’s enjoy exploring the Busan National Science Museum, which stimulates children’s imagination and adults’ memory!
