What people are saying:

Modern art meets tradition and East meets West at The Leeum Museum. The museum is split into 2 sections, one for Korean traditional art and antiquities, and the other for modern art by both Korean and international artists. I found the Korean antiquities to be a bit boring, and if you're like me, you can speed through that section and dedicate most of your time to the modern art, which includes some awesome larger and full-room installations. You can easily view the whole museum in 2 hours. Since it's walking distance from the Grand Hyatt and Namsan Tower, it pairs nicely with brunch at the Hyatt or a walk up to Seoul Tower for a compete day.

    Good Korean Art Museum

    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.
