Uijae Museum

Get a dose of art the next time you hit Mudeun Mountain. Near Jeungshimsa, you can check out the Uijae Museum of Korean Art.

Uijae Museum of Korean Art is located on the way up to Mudeunsan (Mountain) near Jeungsim Temple in Gwangju. The Exhibition Cave as the museum building is called has a floating walkway leading to a tea area to enjoy a fragrant green tea before or after a view of the museum. Glass windows in the tea area panel the view of the mountainside, creating a natural painting, just as Master Uijae himself would have painted although in traditional Korean style with paper, ink and brush. The trapezoidal building leads the visitor through the collection in an intuitive meander, as if enjoying the outdoor paths up Mudeunsan.
