What travelers say:

"The largest private art museum in South Korea, founded by the Samsung Group, is a large building consisting of three venues, all in a distinctive style. In addition to its contemporary art collection, it also houses a number of national treasure-grade artifacts, which display the works of famous artists from around the world." The traditional Korean crafts, ceramics, calligraphy, painting, etc., are very humanized, built-in sensors, automatic introduction of the exhibits, no photography allowed in the inside, the sense of space design is very strong, from the traditional, modern to the future concept, are displayed in turn, it is worth to see.
