  • For those who are looking for superb experience of culture of Korea and art pieces of global scale, must come and stop by. I highly recommend some of the event that are sponsored and held here on monthly basis. Staff also has outdoor screen to play and provide passive experience of music/instrumental
  • I have lived close to Seoul Art Center. That's why I so often went to there to go for a walk or meet someone who are friends as well. There is the Mozart Coffee shop outside of there. they serve kindly and refill drip coffee if you desired. Also if you buy something like coffee, etc from at the coffee shop, parking fee is discounted.
  • This place is great for a wander about. Very well organised and beautifully appointed. Some good facilities. It would, however, benefit from varying its offerings in terms of the concerts it puts on as its a beautiful space that is woefully under utilised. It could be used for so much more. Also, if you like hikes the mountain out the back is a great trail.
  • Number one art centre in Korea, good place to enjoy nature with kids.
  • It was an incredible experience to perform there. The staff and administration are fantastic people. Pleasure to work with them.
