A lot of the history of photography and the depth of France was the stimulus is only a small part of our photos yet art charge. and do not also thick and wide compared to the artists and broke even, it was recognised

  • I thought this was an interesting museum, albeit relatively small. Some of the exhibits were very unusual, but some were very interesting. It took less than 1 hour to see everything. 
  • Chun Kyung-ja Youn various pictures of great paintings, including City Hall and also visit the close by. Even with the virtue Kotobuki shrine near the MPAA even okay.

  • Seoul Museum of Art (SeMA) is a Korean modern art museum conveniently located in the Deoksugung Palace area near Jeongdong Theater (traditional performances) and Nanta Theater. 
  • Cool place with visiting exhibits. Worth a visit.
  • Average museum with some interesting temporary exhibitions, a little weak on the permanent collection
  • One of my favorite museums in Seoul. A must-visit.
  • New exhibitions of Korean and International Modern and Contemporary Art hosted every month or even more often!
