The Leeum Samsung Museum of Art is the perfect place to enjoy traditional and contemporary art created by Korean and international artists. Most of the exhibits on display at the museum are based on the large collection of the founder, the late Lee Byeong-cheol, once president of the Samsung Group. Three world-renowned architects, Maria Botta, Jean Nouvel, and Rem Koolhaas, were commissioned to design the outstanding museum complex. The name Leeum is the acronym of the family name of its founder, “Lee” and an abbreviated word for museum, “um”. The museum is composed of three individual buildings linked together as a composite complex. Museum 1 showcases traditional Korean arts and crafts such as calligraphy, ceramic arts and metal craft work, while Museum 2 displays dynamic modern and contemporary art by domestic and international artists, this section includes the Samsung Child Education & Cultural Center which offers cultural education for children.
