45 Days is Seoul: Leeum: Samsung Museum of Art

It's no secret that Samsung owns almost everything in Korea, even art. And they do it well! Leuum is so far my favourite art museum in Seoul, already planning another visit, because one hour last time wasn't clearly enough.

Samsung Museum of Art: Leeum, consists of three buildings, one for traditional Korean art, the other one for international contemporary art and third for educational centre. The three buildings of Leeum were respectively created by three of the most renowned architects of our time—Mario Botta, Jean Nouvel, and Rem Koolhaas

I usually don't rent an audio guides at museums but at Leeum it's highly recommended. First, there's not much information written next to artworks and secondly because the audio guides there are particularly high-tech Samsung devices that automatically recognise which painting you're looking at.

And the best? Sculptures by Anish Kapoor and Alexander Calder outside the museum are on view for free.
