I must say that I'm not an art expert or a person who loves museums that much. However, I do love art. Of all art museum I've visited in BKK I must say that this place is the best.

Wonderful art museum that it is definitely worth spending a day, or at least an afternoon, visiting this place. The art collections are all remarkable and very significant, especially the Thai Artists' work pieces which can make you get to know more about contemporary art in Thailand. The location is not so easy to find, and either the place is... More

I have to say I love art museums but usually contemporary art doesn't really catch my attention. However, I found myself in a continuous verge of crying given how unexpectedly good the museum is. The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) of Bangkok is a must visit! All art is from Thai artists in the last 20 years. Mind blowing pieces... More

I confess that Im not usually a museum visitor. I just wanted something different to do for an afternoon. So off to MOCA I went and it was grand. It was the best 250 baht Ive ever spent. Amazing building, stunning garden setting and a display of works that kept me entertained for the better part of the day. Some... More

If you like modern art, then by all means, visit. Terrific view of Thai nationalism and modernity through its engagment with European modernism (+ postcolonial preoccupations). The technical expertise was stunning. The museum is quite far the from main tourist areas, but the staff helped us a get a taxi as we were leaving.

This place is the private museum and the owner also have another museum which is the same as here in kaoyai national park. The location is pretty difficult to find but the easiest way to reach there is by cab. A lots to see inside, recommended!

A fantastic experience and well worth the trip. The museum is modern with beautiful works of art for every taste. A thoroughly enjoyable trip. Make sure you leave enough time for this. There are many floors and, should you enjoy it as much as I did, it will take time. Once the BTS is finished access should be easier but... More
