The historical part has a spectacular scenography, and we contemporary part displays a very interesting masterpiece of great artist. You should count 3 hour for the visit.

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.

The Leeum (Samsung Museum) itself is a work of art, with architecture by Rem Koolhaus, Mario Botta and Jean Nouvel. It is much larger than I realized, so I saw the complete modern and contemporary collection, but only scratched the surface of the tradional museum....More

Neighboring the immense Yongsan American Garrison,
Itaewon was once shunned by locals as a seedy, red
light district. But within the past few years, Itaewon
and its surrounding neighborhoods such as Kyunglidan
and Haebangchong have undergone a major revival to
