  • Seoul tourism for a long time, I visited the Seoul Municipal Museum of art. From City Hall station located five minutes by foot. Monument to great Roses at the entrance. Is the appearance of the Museum staff, the Interior is new and beautiful. And exhibited many paintings and works of art is, art is difficult for me. Library and Café facilities. Was able to visit, check in their luggage and coin-operated lockers. Of course, the admission is free.

  • City Hall has moved to walk in. Outdoor sculptures are also memorable, and spectators, even though everybody works for quiet and eclectic was able to focus on.

  • 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!
