Explanation

Seoul Museum of Art (SeMA), opened on August 19, 1988, is a modern art museum conveniently located in the Deoksugung Palace area near Jeongdong Theater. The museum's facade showcases architecture of the 1920s, while the rest of the building was remodeled in 2002.

SeMA is a 3-story building with six exhibition halls, a lecture hall for educational programs, and a library where art-related books, magazines, and visual reference materials are available to the public.
