Museum SAN, one of the top 100 Korean tourism.
‘Space Art Nature’, the abbreviation for ‘SAN’
I thought it was a museum SAN because it is in the mountains.
It all meant something.

The location is in Oak Valley, Wonju, and it takes about three hours from Seoul. So I have to leave early on weekend morning.
The modern simplicity of the building is simple and beautiful.
It’s perfectly comfortable.
Departing early in the morning, after lunch near Oak Valley, i stopped by MUSEUM SAN with a sense of satiety.
Since we are full, stable, and fine weather, all other steps of desire have been resolved. Let’s enjoy our cultural life and fulfill our desire for self-realization.
General Admission is 18,000 won.
The admission fee to the museum is a bit high, and you have to purchase additional tickets to enter the James Turrell exhibition hall.
The admission fee for the museum and the Turrell exhibition hall is 28,000 won.
An umbrella is set in case of snow, rain, and strong sunlight. Since the sun is strong today, wouldn’t it be a little less hot if I hold an umbrella.
I have to hold the camera. So Pass.
It starts with ‘Flower Garden’. A reddish-blue flower at the bottom And the birch forest road in front of it.
I’m full now so I’m walking slowly, enjoying the rainbow pink flowers. Take a picture quickly at the rare timing.
The head of the sculpture moves in accordance with the direction of the wind.
A rainbow pink flowers not yet in full bloom. Won’t it be full by the end of July?
A white birch path leads through the rainbow pink flowers garden.
If you throw a coin into the middle hole over there, you’ll get a small item. It’s really a high-level mission. In a hole just the size of a coin in the middle?
Passing through the pink flower garden and the birch trees, you will find Water Garden.
Passing through a red sculpture, such as a gate, you will find the entrance to the museum.
A path as if built on water.
Take one more photo before go in.
Now let’s get into the main building.
The combination of concrete and stone walls is beautiful. Clean.
And this is the famous outdoor terrace? The shading tables are full.
People who sit down and relax and take pictures, People who don’t have a place to hang out and hope for a spot.
Table without shade is so hot, so nobody sits down.
The main theme of the museum is “paper.” The history of paper and various works related to paper. Relax in the cool room.
Slowly look around and sit down on the first floor cafeteria. And i’m snooping around on the outdoor terrace.
I can’t find a seat, so I’m just gonna go out and take a picture. I prefer the view down from the second floor. The view on the first floor is limited.
The shield is not fixed, it’s driven by the wind. Sometimes this kind of disaster happens. We can’t get in the water, so we have to wait for the wind to blow in the other direction.
Line and surface are well combined and stable.
There are many works of art on display in the main building of the museum, and among them, Paik Nam-june’s works are on display.
Although it is one piece, it is short and intense.
Line meets line to form plane. This is Triangle Court.
Once you pass the main building, you’ll see Stone Garden. A total of nine stone tombs. It is said that it’s a motif of the ancient tombs of Silla.
If the main museum is both line and plane, Stone Garden is the beginning of the curve.
There are nine stone mounts in total. JeollaNam-bukdo, Gyeongsangnam-bukdo, Chungcheongnam-bukdo, Gyeonggi-do, Gangwon-do, Jeju-do?
I didn’t check Gyeonggi, Gangwon, and Jeju, but maybe?
Sunscreen and umbrella are essential in hot summer. No man can stand under the steaming sun.
James Turrell’s exhibition hall has a fixed viewing time and a limited number of people. You can enter every 30 minutes, so you have to come on time.
No admittance except for the designated time.
Oak Valley in summer is full of people playing golf. A well-shaven lawn and fountain pond. Beautiful!
At this point, it’s time to introduce this amazing museum architect.
Ando Tadao (Dadao).
I’m giving heartfelt applause to him for his great work.
Passing through the main building of the museum, past the Water Garden, past the Flower Garden, and back to the Welcome Center.
Welcome Center Busier Than Morning.
Leave the umbrella in place and ready to leave.
A three-hour one-way trip and six-hour round trip.
Unexpected Museum SAN.
The next thing i want to do is take someone’s hand and come back to the museum.
Eat well, rest well, watch well.
