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.

Getting an audioguide is highly recommended, or you can visit 3pm weekends for the free 1½-hour tours in English.
