The Leeum Museum of Art offers an experience of viewing both traditional Korean art and global contemporary art. Museum 1 which was designed by Mario Botta holds Korean national treasures, landscape and folk paintings, as well as 14th-century ornaments and tools and Buddhist scripts, painting, and manuscripts. Museum 2 designed by Jean Nouvel houses contemporary art including world-famous artists Damien Hirst and Andy Warhol. With an extensive collection of art and culture, and the combination of three world-famous architects for the structure, the Leeum Museum of Art solidifies itself as a bucket list item on a global level.
