About the Museum

Amorepacific Museum of Art (APMA) started with the private art collection of the founder and former Chairman & CEO, Suh Sungwhan. Established in 1979 as Pacific Museum, it was renamed as Amorepacific Museum of Art in 2009. As a museum holding both traditional and contemporary art, APMA has been engaged in a wide range of activities including exhibitions, research, publications and more. The year 2018 opens a new chapter in the history of APMA, unveiling various spaces for artists and visitors to communicate through humanity’s universal language known as art at the new Amorepacific headquarters in Yongsan, Seoul.

Galleries on the basement level and Atrium, a space stretching from the first to the third floor, are designed as spaces to communicate with the local community through culture. More specifically, visitors are greeted by the lobby and museum shop, the exhibition space ‘APMA Cabinet’, as well as the exhibition catalogue library ‘Amorepacific Library of Art Project (apLAP)’ located on the first floor.
