Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), Bangkok

4.4
#3 of 73 in Museums in Bangkok
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. Plan trip to Bangkok with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

  • At the opening on weekdays and 10: 00, I was the first visitor of the day, and until noon, I haven't seen a lot of people in the galleries large and well-furnished of this magnificent building inaugurated in 2012 and on 6 levels. About the home, and to respond to a previous post as stupid and useless read on TripAdvisor, I found the staff very nice and professional. The price, 250 baht (highest price) is from my point of view, very reasonable the first 5 levels offer very beautiful works of Thai artists (paintings and to a lesser extent, sculptures) this type of Museum regulars will recognize on some of them, the European influence of the XX th century, symbolism, realism, surrealism... but there are also more typically Asian and Thai works and that's good. Some are masterful and take up the space of a gallery the passage "in universe", a kind of corridor representing the universe and galaxies left me puzzled. It has for me the only advantage to bring the visitor in a gallery or throne 3 huge impressive compositions the 6th and last level of the Museum is reserved for European, American and Chinese artists. A gallery, offers beautiful classical pieces even the IX th century European who détonnent in this type of Museum, one gallery in which, oddly, the photos are banned (even without flash) starting around 2:30 to visit the Museum. Small cafeteria on the ground floor access (beginning March 2018) by taxi only (motorcycle or car from Mo Chit BTS), but the new metro stations will open over the next few weeks (current March/April I think) good visit

  • There are fewer people in the exhibition, so it's nice to have a quiet walk in the exhibits are wonderful to enjoy the art exhibition it's hard to find a way to go to Mo Chit Uber the past can not be difficult to find the actual navigation.

  • For art lovers, a visit to MOCA is absolutely recommendable! Modern and contemporary art from Thailand in a beautiful Museum. Still abides by the audience rush into borders, consider the works in peace and quiet, to one half a day should be scheduled. Many taxi drivers have heard never anything of MOCA, therefore it is recommended to have the address / directions. Senior citizens 60 pay no entry - identification for proof!
