3 Modern Art Galleries In Cheongdam To See

Last updated:

The National Museum of Contemporary Art is a definite must-see in the art world of Korea. It’s an interesting space where one can gain an artistic view of the intersection of Korea’s once xenophobic culture with its current open embrace of the outside world.

Though not as famous as the Seoul Museum of Art, its mission to foster the valuable and challenging works of modern Korean artists makes it well worth your visit. Here are some more art galleries around the Cheongdam area.
