  • 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...  more »
  • 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.  more »

  • Very nice to see lots of Korean contemporary artworks. And the building itself is very nice. Entering 1.5 hrs before the museum close is definitely not enough time to walk through everything. At least 2 hours to visit this place is suggested!
  • Three different architects for three different spatial showcases.. history_modern_futureEducation Very well done. Also the audio guides are amazing, you don't need to put any code, they understand where you are and start automatically to explain the artwork near you. Awesome!
