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. In one of the exhibition halls is a permanent collection titled “The Soul of Chun Kyung Ja,” an exhibition of the works of the famous Korean artist Chun Kyung Ja.

An art museum popular among both locals and visitors, SeMA holds internationally renowned exhibitions twice a year and has hosted Chagall, Matisse, Picasso, Van Gogh, Pompidou, and many other famous collections.
