I've been to this center many times. If you keep an eye on their website, they will get very interesting exhibits. They have had a Studio Ghibli, Steam Punk, Impressionist Art (Van Gogh), and Freida Kahlo in just the last four years. The musical performances are also good, but you might need a Korean friend to help you get tickets.

I have attended 2 events at the Seoul Arts center and have been impressed with the venue each time. The venue is well-organized with a spacious concert hall, well-marked and convenient restrooms, and several dining & snack options.

I'm a regular visitor here. The parking lot is adequate, and the lobby is quite wide. The bar and food is okay, although a bit pricey. The program being run is quite good, and has a concert almost every day. The view is fine, with almost no obstructed view (try to avoid seats with overhang). But the acoustic is somewhat... More

You couldn't luck out much better than to see two exhibitions of the Queen of Art Deco and the Father of Art Nouveau. Tamara de Lempicka for the first time in Korea, and Alphonse Mucha for the second time here in 3 years. Both give a great retrospective on the work of the artists, and the Mucha exhibition shows a...

This was our first time to the Seoul Art Center (SAC) and I must say the facility and performance were both excellent. The SAC is really a complex of different venues. We are at the main stage for an afternoon matinee. The wife and I have seen the Nutcracker at least five time over the past twenty or so years... More

We attended the Korean National Ballet to see the Nutcracker. The facility was beautiful and we had a wonderful night!

Came for a concert. This concert hall was beautiful. Every seat had a good view and the acoustics were awesom. This is attached to the bus and train station and it has some shopping and dining opportunities. This venue is primarily for events and would not necessarily be a destination to visit if there were no event you were going... More

This excellent facility provides spaces for music, opera, plays and art concerts of all kinds. There are also international art exhibitions at the galleries on site. In winter they even have a skating rink outside. It is a 10-15mn walk from Nambu bus terminal station. It Could do with a better selection of dining options though.

Many classical operas and modern musicals are on stage throughout the year. Many musicians also present their beautiful plays as well.

As with all my reviews to sights in Seoul I will preface this by advising visitors to carefully check opening days and times and whether timed entry tickets are needed to access certain parts of the attraction and also the times for booking guided tours in their language of preference – bearing in mind that numbers can be limited. Obviously... More
