  • 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!
