Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), Bangkok
(4.4/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
At Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), a privately owned gallery, see a well curated collection of artworks fusing traditional Thai art and modern art. The collection includes paintings and sculptures from both local and foreign artists representing several generations of Thai culture. Before browsing the gallery, take a moment to admire the artwork of the building itself. From a distance it appears to be hewn out of a single block of granite, with ornate openwork carvings adorning the facade.

  • 十分噁心的展览,看了会不舒服,尤期很多的人獣结合体,非常的不合常理,这是代表那一方面的艺术以及文化呢?也在表达或傳达些什么訉息呢?这个埸所也不适合小孩和孕妇,因为可以说是完全没有教育性质的,看了会发恶梦。 
  • The building and architecure, and the 6 floors with a stunning selection of contemporary art was a great experience. This is definetly one of the top museums of contemporary art in the world. Dont mis...  more »
  • Wonderful Museum of Thai artists. Very nice building, impeccable organization, amazing collection. 5 floors of sheer beauty. Staff polite, I was very impressed, international level. The Museum is only a short distance away, near the airport, stay in Chatuchak, I believe that one of the reasons to have few visitors. For those who appreciate art is a must. We went from uber, best location, ticket 180 baht.

  • Beautifully designed building with extremely well thought out layout. Every floor was impeccably curated. Really enjoyed my experience and feel this is a must see destination. I will be following exhibit updates from back home until I can return again.
  • Really great contenporary environment with art and design that really captures the essence of the Thai art style in both traditional and modern settings. About 100THB taxi ride from MoChit BTS
  • The art works are good, but not avantgarde. So as to an "contemporary art" museum, I was expecting sth more regular art pieces. Pity that the location of MOCA is out of city center that made it not-that-easy to reach. I think an art museum should be located in city center. But in Bangkok, most of them are department store. BE WARE OF THE TRAFFIC JAM in the evening around it's closing hour. Spent 1 hour in traffic jam to where I live (normally it takes 15 mins) And hard to get a cab too. MAKE RESERVATION THROUGH UBER IS A MUST.
  • Although circumstances allowed me less than an hour in this lovely museum, I enjoyed it a lot and plan to come back soon with at least 3 hours to soak in both the thought-provoking art collections and atmosphere. only thing i miss is suitable music and some action-style arts seen in great museums abroad like MOMA. ps. anyone over 60 get in free! Cant wait until skytrain arrives near this great place in a few yrs!
  • World class modern art musuem. Location is a bit off the city centre. Must visit of you are a modern art lover.
