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.
I always visit the local museum when I go to any foreign city. The Contemporary Korean Art Museum is a must-visit place for anyone who likes art and beautiful modern museums. The museum exhibits a collection of modern and historical art. I only visited the Modern Art Hall because that is my favorite style.
I would like to highlight and recommend this museum. I rarely see it mentioned in travel notes, but it is really good. The address is next to Gyeongbokgung Palace and on the only way to Bukchon. I passed by it when I went to Seoul once, but I didn't know it, so I walked away. When I went to Seoul again this year, I went to enjoy it because of the free time, Oh my God! It is a very wonderful museum. Tickets are 4000 won. Almost all the visitors are locals (there are many students). There are no other tourists except me. There are special guides at certain times. Unfortunately, I can’t understand all Korean... PS: On The exhibition in the first half of the year is different from that in the second half~
The National Museum of Contemporary Art in Seoul, South Korea is next to Gyeongbokgung Palace, the main body of the palace during the last dynasty of Korea. There are free digital lockers, flashes cannot be used for shooting exhibits, and there are cinemas and some other shops in the cafeteria, which used to be the old defense and security headquarters building.
There are Korean modern and contemporary art here, all of which are the works of local artists, worth visiting
