Leeum is the largest private art gallery in South Korea, with more than 15,000 works on display, including national treasures, leading works from the early modern and modern art periods and works by prominent international artists.
The name of the museum is a portmanteau of the word Lee, the name of the late founder of Samsung Group, and the word museum. Leeum consists of the three buildings: Museum I which displays ancient works, Museum II which exhibits modern art, and the Samsung Child Education and Culture Center.
The buildings were designed by masters of modern architecture Mario Botta (Switzerland), Jean Nouvel (France) and Rem Koolhass (Netherlands).
