Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), Bangkok

#3 of 86 in Museums in Bangkok
Art Museum · Hidden Gem · Museum
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.

  • A short taxi ride from Chatuchat markets is MOCA. I travelled to Mo Chit by BTS to the markets first, then MOCA in the afternoon. The modern building is wonderful and contains a stunning collection...  more »

  • Great museum. Beautiful space. Thai modern art has its own sense of style, flair, and swagger. A confident blend of Thai tradition, Buddhist themes, and influences from the Italian Renaissance. Definitely worth the visit.
  • What an amazing museum! We spent a few hours here in the summer of 2018 and it was relatively empty which gave us the ability to go around and take lots of photos. The architecture alone is stunning and the permanent and temporary exhibits were well-curated and powerful. Cannot say enough nice things about this place. We'll be sure to visit again in the future.
  • Amazing place and possible to get there with the BTS and public buses. The museum is located in a big beautiful building in north Bangkok. Entry is 250 baht and students get a discount. They are closed Monday and open until 6pm. They had free luggage storage. Staff was knowledgeable about buses . I spent about 3 hours looking around the 5 floors of art. Mostly paintings, some sculptural. Was a very interesting insight to Thai daily life and religious customs. Wish there had been more female artists represented.
  • Really is a fantastic museum. Asian contemporary art is not something you see often in the western world. The building is beautiful and so is the collection. The tickets are well priced especially if you are a student you should bring your school I'd for a great discount. The collection contains a lot of nudity if that is something you do not enjoy. The main annoyance is getting there, no public transport available yet except for local busses therefore it can turn into an expensive trip but still worth it.
  • Very interesting contemporary art museum not too far from the old airport Dong Muang... The exhibitions tend to be permanent but there are also temporary ones. Definitely worth a visit and the entry fee ... several floors with abundant galleries displaying Thai and international modern art.
