What To Expect
Explore South Korea and discover its fascinating history as you visit museums showcasing the country's traditions and culture. Your first stop would be the National Museum of Korea, which houses precious cultural assets dating back to the ancient days. The museum, which is the largest museum in Korea, is located near the Yongsan Family Park - a wooded grassland area with a pond that serves as a natural habitat for various species of birds. The War Memorial of Korea, which displays a daunting array of wartime relics, is also just a kilometer away from Yongsan Station.
Discover traditional works of art such as calligraphy, paintings, ceramic arts and metal crafts at the Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art. The museum is a work of art in itself since it was designed by internationally renowned architects Mario Botta, Jean Nouvel and Rem Koolhaas.
We then continue to the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art. Here you'll see classical works of modern art ranging from paintings in Indian ink to marvelous sculptures. Aside from the exhibitions, the center also hosts musical performances, lectures, workshops and seminars for artists.
Lastly, take a relaxing stroll through the street where traditional and modern Korea combines. The Samcheongdong-gil Road, which stretches from Gyeongbokgung Palace to the Samcheong Tunnel is lined with cafes, museums, antique shops and art galleries. Many galleries allow visitors to enjoy art, shop and dine at the same time. Just past the Samcheong Tunnel, you'll find Samcheong Park, which is famous for its thick forest and scenic views.
