Introduction

Located in beautiful Gwacheon, the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Gwacheon displays work by Korean and international modern artists, as well as work by those contemporary artists currently making waves in the art world. As well as its permanent collection, the museum generally presents several special exhibitions, which run for three to four months. For English information on the special exhibitions, visitors should check the Art Exhibitions section of VisitKorea’s “What’s On This Month” calendar, the link to which can be found on the main page. Most of the exhibitions can be seen free of charge, although some of the major special exhibitions may charge an admission fee. The museum’s six exhibition galleries are spread over three floors, and includes a children’s gallery. The museum is conveniently located on the outskirts of Seoul near to several other attractions, such as the Seoul Grand Park, and Seoul Land amusement park, so the area makes for a good day trip.
