Main Venue of Korean Art Scene

Seoul Museum of Art Seosomun

서울시립미술관 서소문

Hidden behind Deoksugung Palace along the Deoksugung Stonewall Road, Seoul Museum of Art (SeMA) is more famous amongst Seoulites than tourists, regularly hosting both major Korean and international modern art exhibitions and boasting one of the city's more gorgeous gardens. SeMA is comprised of several branches located across Seoul, but the Seosomun Branch is its main location and the largest, with six exhibition halls and galleries, a library, lecture halls, and cafes. The building itself is a work of art; a classical Western-style structure that once housed the Supreme Court, with a tall glass roof bringing plenty of natural light into the museum.
