Seoul, South Korea for Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art

One day during our Seoul trip, after we spent enough time exploring the Gyeongbokgung Palace areas, we ventured into the charming little area of Samcheong, packed with independent cafes, art galleries and shops. We decided to take a turn into this little alley, fully unaware of what was expecting us. All of a sudden, we were facing a vast field and a cool looking building that turned out to be the MMCA. And what do you know, it was on that day that the admission was free. So we were happy to explore it for a couple of hours! In the giant main area of the museum we got a chance to see a really cool installation by Julis Popp, in which hundreds of water droplets formed various words in different languages. The other areas of the museum were equally cool and intriguing. The museum also had quiet/media spaces, where you could watch a movie or just plant yourself on a lazybag and enjoy the impressive, vast interior. Couldn’t be happier that I stumbled upon this gem!
