This newly built museum preserved the facade of the old Supreme Court Office building.
After a short walk from City Hall Station we arrived at the entrance to the Museum of Art. There is a small winding path leading up to the museum. On both sides of the path you can see plants, flowers and trees. It is here and in front of the main door of the museum that you can find the special outdoor exhibit which includes statues and sculptures.
The museum is constantly holding exhibitions of all kinds. Some of the most famous exhibitions to be held here were from Chagall, Picasso, Matisse, Magritte and Van Gogh. When I arrived at the museum the Seoul, City Exploration, and Korea∙Australia Exchange Exhibition were on display. Entrance to both were free. Also, there is a permanent exhibition called the Spirit of Chun Kyung-Ja.
For a list of exhibitions currently on display check out the official site of the Seoul Museum of Art.
