Ilmin Museum of Art is a private art museum of South Korea, located on Sejongno street in Jongno-gu, a central district of Seoul, known for exhibiting mainly Korean art. The museum was established and run by the Ilmin Cultural Foundation, a non-profit organization founded in 1994 in memory of Kim Sang-man, former president of Dong-A Ilbo, one of the major newspaper companies of South Korea. Kim devoted his entire life to developing Korean journalism and promoting Korean culture. The museum is named after his pen name, "Ilmin".

On December, 1996, the museum opened as Ilmin Art Hall with 3 exhibition rooms in Dong-a Ilbo's previous location, built in 1926. The museum is based on the art collection of Ilmin acquired during his time. After undergoing a one-year renovation, the museum reopened on February, 2002. The building has five stories and the 650 m² facility. Ilmin Museum of Art also runs the only documentary archive of South Korea.
