The collection of Korean ceramics, paintings, and bronzes is beautiful. They are displayed in the circular floor-plan building and are very well presented and described. The collection is not large and even if you read everything, it is not more than about an hour's visit...More

Even if you're not into modern art, the museum's architecture is worth the visit and before or after the visit you can walk around the neighborhood that surrounds the museum. Is a very modern part of the city with great restaurants.

Museum is kinda small than it seems. Entrance is 10,000 wons...some nice pictures can be taken outside the museum. Nice location close to Itaewon. Modern art section is pretty good
