  • Celadon and Mark Rothko and Damien Hirst! One of my favorite museums ever. Expertly arranged museum, with the juxtaposition of old and new telling a great story. The self-paced audio tour is worth....  more

  • Lots of impressive eye candy in the form of lights and mirrors. The 3-D contemporary art is my favorite, and it delivered. The abstract expressionist stuff isn’t my thing, nor is the 12th century...

  • Very modern and impresive museum. Audio guide is very precise and accurate. It shows mainly modern korean art and ancient ceramic pieces found in archeological excavations.

  • If you are in Seoul, highly recommend Leeum to add to your list. The museum has two areas to visit and based on the new exhibitions they add more. Such a great experience. You need to reserve your ticket on their website. It is free but getting the tickets is so hard. Be aware of the fact that you may not be able to enter without reservation if the ticket holders are all showed up. Each night (00:00) they open free tickets for reservation on the website.
  • Pleasant place to look around. Due to covid, reservation is required. It was big surprise to meet Dali’s work.
  • One of the best museum in Korea. It is the best one for my taste. From the ancient where came from this land to the future where we should walk through, there are a lot of things to enjoy. Please join the beauty and the inspiration in here.
  • Spectrum 2022, preview. Very good art museum near from Yitaewon
  • Great museum. Due to CoVid, reservations might be necessary as visitors are limited. Tickets were free to reserve. Wonderful collection- interesting modern pieces as well as historical pieces. Gorgeous celadon collection.
