A few weeks ago I went to the National Museum of Korea to see two exhibitions. One was this one, Masterpieces of the French Art of the XVII-XIX Centuries from the Collection of the Hermitage. The other is The Tiger in East Asian Art: Korea, Japan, China, which is an exhibition that’ll only be held until March 18th since it’s special for the Winter Olympics.

Dates & Time:

This exhibition will be held until April 15th, 2018. Please check the National Museum of Korea website.

Location:

It’s in the special exhibition gallery 1-2 that’s located outside the main building of the National Museum of Korea. To find the best directions, check out the National Museum of Korea website.

Price:

Admission to the main part of the museum is free. Only special exhibitions cost money. Here is the pricing for this special exhibit and the Tigers in East Asian Art exhibition. I paid for the “Exhibition Package,” since I thought it was a good deal.

Pieces That I liked

My Thoughts

The paintings in this exhibition were gorgeous! I was so blown away by everything! I went with a friend, but I may go again by myself to further enjoy the paintings alone. The details in some of the paintings were so mind-blowing. I highly recommend visiting this exhibition especially if you’re like me and have never been to Europe to see amazing paintings like this.

Overall, a 10/10 for me! Also, it’s best to go on a weekday to avoid big crowds and it’s probably not best to go during the holidays.
