Seoul has some of the best public transportation in the world and since parking around the Leeum Samsung Museum of Art is so limited, it is highly recommended that visitors choose public transport over driving. The best way to get there is to use the Seoul Subway and get off at the Hangangjin station that is about a five-minute walk from the Leeum Samsung Museum of Art. There are guides on site but they need to be arranged in advance, otherwise you can hire one of the digital guides on offer at the museum.
