    Located in the Itaewon neighborhood, this fantastic (if small) museum is worth visiting just for the fantastic architecture of the modern building that houses it. Presentation of its collection, from ancient Korean celadon ceramics to contemporary non-representational painting, is top-notch. Smaller than the mammoth National Museum, but on a whole more digestible, and more rewarding. Admission 10,000 won, closed Mondays.

    삼성이 운영하는 미술관, 상설전과 기획전 그리고 종종 이벤트가 열리곤 한다. 그 전에는 그닥 주변에 먹을 곳도 없어서 불편했으나 이제는 주변에 꽤나 괜찮은 가게들이 늘어나고 있다. 미술관 자체의 소유한 작품이라던지 큐레이터의 기획 역량은 훌륭한 편. 추천할만한 장소.
    The place is art Museum where is modern style architectures have many works of art and art projects. Leeum permanent exhibition is divided into big two parts that is Korean Art and Other Art.
    Maybe you visit the Leeum you can take a special experience.

    A small place with a big impact. Great for modern-art and design lovers.
