About
Culture Station Seoul 284 is a dynamic and open multi-disciplinary cultural space that is accessible to everyone. The former Seoul Station had been a major stage in modern and contemporary Korean history and a gateway for transportation and commerce for almost a century. After its restoration back to its original appearance, it was officially launched in August of 2011 as a space for diverse artistic and cultural creation and exchange. The official name, which combines its historic, spatial, and urban symbolism , was selected through a national open call. By combining the notion of a cultural space with the old Seoul Station's historic site number 284, the name embodies the concepts of preserving its appearance and value as a historic site while simultaneously cultivating the meaning of the station as a place of various cultural intersections.

This Seoul station was well-preserved as it was in Korean Modernization era. There had old shape and reminded my childhood. Some attraction, namdaemun, seoul bridge 7017,etc was located beside this attraction. There was good to enjoy on Seoul bridge 7017 and worth to visit on trip.

We saw the old Seoul Station during our walk on Seoullo elevated walkway. It was an older building that was converted into a rotating exhibit venue. There was a permanent section consisting of a couple of rooms that detailed some of the architectural facts about the station as well as its renovation. Some rooms were modernized while others still had the dark wood paneling and thick red drapes harking back to its original status as the main transportation hub.

In the other rooms were a number of different exhibits about the DMZ. They ranged from photographs of soldiers, artwork interpretations, books of the DMZ, architecture and local vegetation. I really did not expect to see that many exhibits but it was nicely curated and interesting. Docents were available in each section if you had questions and display signs were in both English and Korean.

Overall a very good use of a historical building.

Beautifully artistic representations of the current shattered country, North and South. The displays and many video rooms downstairs really made me think and understand the situation. I spent a lot more time there than expected.

This is the Former Seoul Station and now it is used as a free exhibition hall.
It's good to go inside and take a look half an hour.
- The building itself is an attraction with history.
- The outside is a wide square. It is often noisy with congregations. And it has homeless people and many pigeons.

We walked past this on the way back to our hotel and we thought we saw a similar one in Japan’s Tokyo station. Not sure of the significance. There are a lot of homeless men here.

This station is no longer used as a train station but is confusingly named as Seoul station, and located beside the active Seoul station.

This is the old Seoul Station turned into a museum. Head out of the main entrance of Seoul Station and take a left.

Its a great museum with lots see inside. On entry i received a little ticket likened to the old style tickets that were used in the past. A good touch.

Its not just about trains. I saw different art exhibits so there is something for all.

The architecture is amazing and i am so glad that they have preserved it.

Not many people visit this little gem, put it on your list. :)

It's so easy to reach your destinations in Seoul City and around Seoul by their public transport which is by train. I can say here citizens of Seoul really appreciate by using this connected underground train that across almost many of residences in Seoul nowadays.

The old Seoul Station has been converted into an art space. The exhibit changes from time to time but the real attraction of this building is its architecture. If you are a fan of old buildings or history there is a lot to see here. The building has been completely restored and is open to walk all throughout. There are numerous rooms to see. Two of the rooms are dedicated to the history of the building itself while the rest has become a museum to show off the exhibit at the time. The current exhibit was great although it was all modern art it didn't really fit the space but I still enjoyed my afternoon here. I've also written a more detailed entry on my blog..

A place you should see in Seoul. Rebuilt old station became Culture Station 284. Changing modern art exhibitions and concerts are on display. All free of charge and very well organized. Check it out on Facebook: seoul284.

We tried to find this museum at the Seoul Train Station and were not able to. Someone at an info desk said the museum had moved out of Seoul.
