The Art Museum of Park No-Su
PHOTOGRAPH: COURTESY OF PARK NO-SOO ART MUSEUM

This neat little two-story house built with red bricks is the house where Korean painter Park No-su (pen name Namjung) lived from 1973 to 2011. Much of the house has been well preserved and visitors must still remove their shoes before entering. His works are displayed throughout and his living room, bedroom and reception room remain intact. Dating back to 1937, this house, which was built by then-famous architect, Park Gil-ryong, combines both Western and Japanese architecture. Currently the No. 1 cultural property of Seoul, every detail of the house itself is fascinating. Climb up the creaking wooden stairs and you’ll find a bathroom, a study and an attic on the second floor. From a seat in the attic, you can catch a glimpse of the surrounding green hills and be inspired to take on an artistic pursuit of your own.
