Six exhibition halls and three lecture halls stretch throughout three floors, while large windows fill the interior with natural light. The minimalistic design and white walls lend to an airy feel. The museum hosts a number of special exhibitions; check out current offerings on the website, as they can change quickly. The site offers a lounge, bookstore, and cafeteria.

Seoul Museum of Art Reviews
This place honestly is beautiful and spacious. Lodged in a hill after a bit of a walk in the park paths and after the Seolleung & Jeongneung Royal Tombs. In the same area literally. The building is..... more »
Awful place. Art?? Really?? It is worth less than a Daiso..please avoid it! Staff is very unpolite and complacent more »
Free museum. The Hankook exhibit was being set up, but I was still able to walk around. Two other exhibitions were not yet open (opening 13/12). Two permanent exhibitions are small, but interesting. Allow an hour or so. Cafe on ground level, which was popular with local workers and had coffee special from 11-1.30pm (from memory).
Should have audio introduction all these costumes but anyway enjoy reading it if you are interested
