I am glad to stop by. There was free admission. I got so see some cool Korean contemporary art exhibit there. It is very accessible by subway and very spacious. Sad there were not more people there when I visited on a Thursday morning.

I felt underwelmed by this museum. Worth visiting on a rainy day, but otherwise not worth the effort. Perhaps the museum is more impressive when it has special collections.

I've been to a few modern art museums and this would be the one I would say is the most interesting.

One room was just a bunch of white reindeer heads on the floor and a track playing over and over again saying 'the reindeer was hit by a car' in English and I can only assume the same in the other languages it played.

I really enjoyed the news headlines/short stories of Korean history. They covered war, technology, foreigners, music, movies, and so much more

Highlight for us was Olaf Nicolai's Innere Stimme, a sound performance performed in the library. This is one of the most powerful performances I have experienced for a long time. The effects resonated within for a long time after leaving the museum. Go along and appreciate the beauty of this performance.

This used to be called the Mueum of Modern Art and then the name was changed, resulting in temporary confusion and, even worse, now a permanent sense of disappointment for those coming here hoping to see how art in Korea has changed over time. It can be a fun place to wander around for those with no prior expectations, with plenty of space for the art in large airy rooms, and there's certainly no knowing what to expect! Just don't come here looking for art in the conventional sense ... this is strictly a museum of modern art (except for the shop dowstairs that has souvenirs depicting some of the classical works of art displayed in other galleries in other cities!)
