Very nice little museum dedicated to changing contemporary art exhibitions. The location allows for further exploration of the charming Seochong area with its little cafes and historic residents of poets and artists.

WOW! I was totally blown away by the Nick Knight exhibition! This is my first time visiting Daelim, but we were impressed. We also went to their "sister-museum" that had the "Youth" exhibition, which was also fab! Both museums are worth checking out!

I visited Daelim Museum in the end of April 2015. In fact, I came to Seoul for two things: to watch Paul McCartney's concert and to see the Linda McCartney Retrospective Photo Exhibition at Daelim Museum. The museum is not that large but it's very...More
