“Good, but short”

Gwangju Museum of Art
Ranked #9 of 52 things to do in Gwangju
Attraction details
Reviewed May 12, 2013

The exhibits were pretty cool, but each took literally 15-30 minutes to go through. They seemed as though they changed quite often, so Im sure it would be better if you actually lived in the area and went back every few months. The cafe is also amazing!
We actually went during the May 18th ceremony, and were able to watch a video, hear a presentation (in korean), and listen to people sing. Just happened by chance.
The area that this museum is in is what made the day for us. The walk around is gorgeous. Not only that but the Gwangju Folk Museum and the Gwangju National Museums is so close that you might as well do all three in one day.
Keep in mind that Monday all of these places are closed! Best days to go are Tuesday to Friday.

We toured the art museum on a rainy day. It was full of artwork and artifacts to look at. If you're not really into either Korean history or art, then you may want to sit this one out. It is very detailed in everything and for those who do not naturally enjoy art museums, this one is not going to offer anything extraordinary for you.

I really enjoyed the time spent here and would go back.

The main exibition was classic korean landscape-paintings of hills forests. They were painted in the last 10-20 years by the same artist and they where uninspirering and boring without any creative touch. We went to the child exibition and thus was actually much better. There were some provocative art made by korean artists. Also do not forget to visit the cafe - its very charming with strange, but exciting korean sweets. And you can buy nice art.
