What people are saying:

South Korea’s largest private art museum was established by the Samsung Group. The building is very large and consists of three venues, all of which are unique in style. In addition to the collection of contemporary art, the museum also houses many national treasures of cultural relics. It displays the works of world-renowned artists, including traditional Korean crafts, ceramics, calligraphy, paintings, etc. The explanations inside are very user-friendly, sensors are built-in, and exhibits are automatically introduced. No photos are allowed inside. The spatial design is very strong. The concepts from the modern to the future are all presented in turn, which is worth seeing.
