What people are saying:

An ultra-modern building designed by three masters, Mario Botta, Jean Nouvel, and Rem Koolhaas, which houses a collection of Korean art and Modern art from abroad. Architecture and art lovers must check it out. These are some amazing buildings, of which 2/3 of the area is the exhibition space. The most advanced technology here allows you to observe an item more closely on the borrowed Samsung phone and learn more about it. There is no need to enter the number corresponding to this object-when you are in front of an object, the phone will sense the signal and tell you information about that object until you move on. The priceless celadon, antiques, and some contemporary art works give people an ancient feeling. How about placing a Rothko's black oil painting next to ancient artifacts hundreds of years ago? Anish Kapolei's steel sculpture? Can you imagine this scene.

    Art museum tour

    Good for art people. Too difficult to understand for us. There are free lockers on first floor to keep a large bag and coat.

    Nicely designed building

    The building and the surrounding are interesting enough to give the museum a try even if the collection/ installations are of unequal interest.

    I’m too old for this

    We visited on a Wednesday. Not too many people, so we were able to move around freely. As a Senior, I didn’t have to pay for admission. However, as a senior I found it difficult to relate to the ex...
