Located in the residential neighbourhood of Tongui-dong, near historic Gyeongbokgung Palace, Daelim Museum began its life as Korea’s first specialist photography museum. Today, it holds exhibitions that embrace not only photography but also design and a range of other fields, while continuing to expand its own boundaries. Our vision is to function as a museum where the everyday becomes art. As such, we strive to create exhibitions that suggest new types of lifestyle, allowing the general public to enjoy art within everyday life by casting new light on the value of the objects that surround us.


Daelim Museum plans a variety of exhibitions, events and education programs that offer the general public the chance to enjoy art and culture on a fun and intimate level. In 2012, as part of a long-term strategy aimed at growing together with local communities, the museum opened D Project Space, a facility dedicated to displaying the works and supporting the activity of young artists, in Seoul’s Hannam-dong district. In 2015, we plan to open D Museum, a new annex, also in Hannam-dong. This plan aims to both expand the scale of the museum as a whole and present new, progressive and creative exhibitions that reflect the spatial and local character of the new annex.
