Lots of contemporary arts, with friendly staff. The minus of the place is it quite hidden from the main road.
I was very excited to see this building but left feeling short changed! Externally its not particularly attractive but internally its well laid out and has some elegant features. It's comprised of three distinct spaces, each designed by one of three different architects, and each housing a separate aspect of the permanent collection. The collection is brilliant, from centuries old... More
I made this my first stop in Seoul, I was really looking forward to visiting it! Its architecture drew me there and left almost pleased, the Samsung Child Education & Culture Center was closed to visitors, such a letdown! Museum 1 was boring to me, but went in anyway to check out the rotunda. Museum 2 was enjoyable but just... More
An international level museum. World known artists and impressive displays in a unique building. Don't miss the outdoor sculptures of Anish Kapoor and Calder and Takashi Murakami's installation in the lobby hall. Luckily there was a Calder exhibition, but the permanent collection is also beautiful and interesting! Easy to reach by the brown metro line to Itawon
Leeum had a rather memorable collection of celadon, bronze and other national treasures viewed last year which encouraged a return during a recent trip to Seoul. In addition, I had the chance to see their current special exhibit on Calder which was worth visiting on its own. Individual entrance fees are KRW10000 (~USD10) for the permanent exhibition and KRW8000 (~USD8)... More

I was pretty bored with the shops in Myeongdong and a bit disappointed that autumn has not really kicked-in yet. Was hoping to get some pretty autumn photos but the leaves were still green. Fortunately, Leeum was able to make... More
We came here on the last day of our stay. Leeum is a combination of modernity and Korean culture. One gets a glimpse of both. The building itself is an architectural masterpiece. The sculptures on display were very interesting to watch and so were the paintings. The paintings had a distinct style. The place even had Wi-Fi and that too... More
The museum was inspiring! Very beautiful and showed a modern side of Seoul. I think it’s a must to go, after visiting all the ancient building and palaces. It gave me a better view of Seoul, strong tradition, still so young and energetic!
Everything was excellent. From the buildings' architecture, to the selection of masterpieces. Leeum shows you treasures from Asian countries as well as modernist masterpieces. Unlike other museum, there is not this oppressing feeling when you see so many pieces and don't know where to look. It seems that everything has been carefully selected, and displayed in the best possible way.... More
