We visited the Museum on a midweek morning. A pleasant environment for an hour or so, depending on whether you stop for a drink at the excellent cafe or have a browse around the shop. The exhibition space was showing work by just two Korean artists, one of whom is the namesake of the Museum - Lee Ungno - and the works were laid out across three or four rooms, with a video presentation as well. If is, of course, personal taste; but we loved one artist - Rhee Seundja - and were not so taken with the works of Lee Ungno; but everything was well spaced out, lots of room to step back and take it all in, or sit quietly and contemplate. It was a shame that in one room, the second I think, the paintings had been hung on a wall which faced a wall with windows and none of the paintings had been framed with matte / non-reflective glass, which meant you had to move around a little to really be able to see. This is a relatively small museum, but the flow is good and the ceilings high, the decor light and airy, with internal outdoor spaces and lots of light, so it feels big. The Guide Book (free) to the Museum was available in English and there was an English Language page within the guide to the exhibition - Maestros in Paris. The entrance fee was just 1000KrW, but free to the under-6's, over 64's and few other categories of visitors, all outlined in the guide. The location of the Museum is on the same complex as the Daejeon Museum of Art, two concert halls, the Expo centre and the Hanbat Arboretum; so lots to do and making it a day. This wouldn't be a venue where you could spend half a day, so combining it with other 'things to do' is recommended. That said, well worth a visit.

Lee Ungno Museum is one of the two public art museums in the Daejeon Performance Art Center complex. Considering the building is quite large, there wasn’t much on display. The four display rooms had works of Lee on different mediums ranging from video to sculptures. The cost of admission is a measly 500 won, so it’s worth a stop when visiting the adjacent Hanbat Arboretum.

We really enjoyed spending time in this museum. The architecture of the building is exquisite and the work by Ungno Lee is very beautiful and imaginative. Obviously the museum is well run as the schedule of the exhibits for the whole year is printed in the brochure you get when you enter. As you walk through the galleries you feel like you are inside as well as outside. There is a large coffee shop and a beautiful selection of the artist's work for sale at very reasonable prices. The museum is closed on Mondays and the hours vary depending on the seasons but opening time is 10 am. Make sure to spend time walking around the grounds adjacent to the museum.

This is a must if you are in Daejeon!

This isn't a general public activity. You have to make a reservation before hand to view the exhibit. They don'tlet you make a reservationin person, you have to request online. You would think with it being in the middle of the huge park, it would be a bit more inviting. Pay to enter and only a small amount of art work for how big the building is.

Came here to see an exhibit, and the staff were super friendly and helpful. One girl gave me her phone to listen to the exhibit audio guide, and also came and found me after 5 minutes to see that I was OK. we then discussed the works a bit and about art in general. Good English from the girl too.

Enjoyed the exhibit even more because of the staff, thank you!
