About
Culture Station Seoul 284 is a dynamic and open multi-disciplinary cultural space that is accessible to everyone. The former Seoul Station had been a major stage in modern and contemporary Korean history and a gateway for transportation and commerce for almost a century. After its restoration back to its original appearance, it was officially launched in August of 2011 as a space for diverse artistic and cultural creation and exchange. The official name, which combines its historic, spatial, and urban symbolism , was selected through a national open call. By combining the notion of a cultural space with the old Seoul Station's historic site number 284, the name embodies the concepts of preserving its appearance and value as a historic site while simultaneously cultivating the meaning of the station as a place of various cultural intersections.

This Seoul station was well-preserved as it was in Korean Modernization era. There had old shape and reminded my childhood. Some attraction, namdaemun, seoul bridge 7017,etc was located beside this attraction. There was good to enjoy on Seoul bridge 7017 and worth to visit on trip.

Beautifully artistic representations of the current shattered country, North and South. The displays and many video rooms downstairs really made me think and understand the situation. I spent a lot more time there than expected.

We saw the old Seoul Station during our walk on Seoullo elevated walkway. It was an older building that was converted into a rotating exhibit venue. There was a permanent section consisting of a couple of rooms that detailed some of the architectural facts about the station as well as its renovation. Some rooms were modernized while others still had the dark wood paneling and thick red drapes harking back to its original status as the main transportation hub.

In the other rooms were a number of different exhibits about the DMZ. They ranged from photographs of soldiers, artwork interpretations, books of the DMZ, architecture and local vegetation. I really did not expect to see that many exhibits but it was nicely curated and interesting. Docents were available in each section if you had questions and display signs were in both English and Korean.

Overall a very good use of a historical building.

Cool building and layout with the station right there but the homeless folks were a little scary. Long taxi line so we decided to walk and we discovered a place called Maloney's Station right down the street. Cool place with great craft beer, we stayed there till our hotel was ready, checked in, and then went right back to Maloney's station. Good times.

This majestic building as character compares to the new train station. Is is also beautifully lifted up at night. You may actually see this if you are on the road or going to Seoul Station or Namdaemun (from Seoul Station). Do visit this place if you have a chance.

This is the Former Seoul Station and now it is used as a free exhibition hall.
It's good to go inside and take a look half an hour.
- The building itself is an attraction with history.
- The outside is a wide square. It is often noisy with congregations. And it has homeless people and many pigeons.

Visiting this old station may have 2 goals: looking at the modern art exhibition inside or get an idea of the building architecture. The first may probably vary as exhibitions are temporary, but while I was there they were… let say it politely: not worth the detour; the second is marginally more interesting, really nothing very interesting. Both have an advantage though: they will protect you in case of rain. If sunny, enjoy the building from outside, this is its best part. Good point, entry is free

We walked past this on the way back to our hotel and we thought we saw a similar one in Japan’s Tokyo station. Not sure of the significance. There are a lot of homeless men here.

This station is no longer used as a train station but is confusingly named as Seoul station, and located beside the active Seoul station.

The station is the main terminal for KTX and express services to Busan. The AREX airport express trains operate from here and go to both the Gimpo and Incheon International airports. The station is also served by the Gyeongbu line to various places in the country.

From the central station, the Seoul Metro serves the station with Lines 1 and 4.
Next to Seoul Station is the Lotte mart Discount store and the Galleria department store. The station is a very busy place – and the hundreds of travelers who use it are spoilt for choice with the various places selling snacks.
