The HO-AM Art Museum was launched in 1982 with the collection of fine art pieces amassed throughout the life of Lee Byeong-Cheol, the founder of Samsung Group. Lee himself donated a total of 1,200 art pieces, and now, the Museum is home to 15,000 art pieces that range from the prehistoric age to modern times including about 100 items that are as valuable as national treasures. It features the Buddhist Art Hall on the 1st floor and the Painting & Writing Hall, the Cheongja Hall, the Buncheong Sagi Hall and the Baekja Hall on the 2nd floor. The museum is highly recommended to those who are interested in ancient Korean and oriental art and culture. After touring the Museum, visitors can view the beautiful lake and HO-AM Pavilion over tea at the teahouse. The Museum is located across the west gate of Everland.
