Leeum Samsung Museum of Art information
Korea's premier art gallery is divided into three main buildings, covering modern and traditional art. Contemporary-art lovers will want to focus on Museum 2 featuring a mix of early- and mid-century paintings, sculptures and installations by esteemed Korean and international artists including Nam Jun Paik, Damien Hirst, Andy Warhol and Jeff Koons. For traditional Korean art, Museum 1 is a must, with four floors of paintings, calligraphy, ceramics, celadon, metalwork and Buddhist art. The museum’s third area is devoted to special exhibitions.
