About Sungkok Art Museum
Sungkok Arts & Cultural Foundation was established in 1995. In homage to Mr. Sung Gon Kim, the late founder of Ssangyong Corporation, it was named after Kim's nickname, Sungkok. The museum itself was built upon his former home. This non-profit organization continues Kim’s support for education, arts and culture reflecting his philosophy: "national progress begins with the cultivation of bright minds."
Cafés and restaurants around Sungkok Art Museum
Looking for the cafe with the biggest garden to relax in? Lee Jae-hyo's sculptures planted there may look like spoiled donuts, but artwork aside, it’s a nice garden cafe that sits in the middle of Sungok Art Museum sculpture park. The trees don new colors, creating a million-dollar scenery of nature and art. Those doubtful might question whether it’s really worth it with an entry fee of 4,000 won, but trust us, there’s something to be gotten out of it. The ticket includes a free beverage (although we can't guarantee the quality of coffee), so we'd say it's a pretty sweet deal.
It's only been a year since owner Yu Yeong-hun who used to operate a photography rental studio and Mun Hye-ran who has learned to become a professional barista opened this place. Yet, its seats have been filled by numerous Instagrammers and bloggers capturing and sharing the scenes at the café. The main menu here is comprised of lattes and cappuccinos.
